    No. This is how it's done. No taskbar either.

    Use the desktop toolbar, and put the shortcuts in folders

    Push the Windows key and use the Start screen.

    Look for wake events in the event log perhaps?

    I used a W10 computer which was upgraded from W7, which kept waking to update something for Media Centre. Even though Media Centre itself is no longer there in W10, the scheduled task was left behind and still waking the computer.

    As an interesting aside, there is a really cool restaurant chain I want to try where you eat in total darkness - the idea being that you concentrate on conversation rather than visual context, and also to get an appreciation of how people cope with blindness. I believe that (some of?) the waiters are blind as well.

    LOL! That's more like the way I do things. But then I've been known to do some of my best work in the dark.

    Very interesting. I suppose one could learn to feel one's way around with a fork and knife in hand. Better be eating over your plate there, eh?

Got up, went to see what's happening, was greeted with Windows Welcome screen.

    Both notifications are weird. First, I powered off the laptop, it didn't "shut down unexpectedly". Second, all security services are on and running.

    I've never had a powered off computer to turn itself on without any apparent reason. Any tips where to start looking what caused this?
    So that's what true geek does when sleep walking ? Gets up and checks for updates ?

    Windows 10 Pro IP Build 16299.19 (Branch: RS3 Release)

    It's great that we can customize how our Desktop, Start, Tiles and app shortcuts in Start are displayed.

    I want to keep the taskbar visible as I want to see the clock, available notifications and active applications. Notifications I have set to quiet hours so it keeps silent and does not bombard me with popups every few minutes.

    In Start I have hidden the Application menu/tree and only live tiles are shown for my most important UWP apps. If I want to launch something I just press WIN-key and type what I need. Windows learns pretty fast what I am looking for after using this feature a few times. Usually I only need to type the first or two first letters of my app and it's selected by default. Way faster than navigating a bunch of menus and sub-menus, especially if having hundreds of apps and tools installed. If I forgot the name of the app or Windows does not find what I searched for, then I navigate the menu.

    I'm amazed at how much customization and system configuration we can do nowadays in 10.

    If you notice on my Start screen I have a UWP "World Time Clock" app I obtained when using W8/8.1 that I have small tiles set to different world cities. One can perform that with the Alarms & Clock app as well, which has gotten to be quite advanced. So a tap on the Windows key to see the time or WinKey/T for time on the Taskbar.

    I used to type or scroll as well, but I find it quicker now to hit the WinKey with my left hand and mouse click a tile with my right. I sometimes use a right click on a tile for its context menu as well.

    Very nice there, 24c. Is that wallpaper for seeing which OS you boot to? Sometimes I forget which OS I'm in.

    I hide my Taskbar at the left with few items which I use shortcut keys to open at times. WinKey/1, 2, etc. I also use the tray a lot too with WinKey/B.

    - there must have been a background service running at the time of shut down..
    - something must have prompted the action - but to self-start from the "off-state"..?
    - that is really odd..
