However, the most annoying and worst thing must be how to create a shutdown and reboot tile without a Start button in Windows 8.

Actually, it's very easy to shut down or reboot your Windows 8 PC by just clicking on a tile from the Start screen or a shortcut on the desktop, here's how:

  • Step 5: Go back to the Start screen and verify that your new shutdown tile appears.

It should be remembered, however, that there's no way to terminate a shutdown sequence triggered by any these commands, so be cautious of accidental clicks.

That's it. Now when you want to shut down or reboot Windows 8, you can just double-click on the desktop shortcut or click the Start screen tile. They are not hidden anymore. What's more, you can also get the information for replacements of Windows 8 Start menu.

In addition, Windows 8.1 users will be able to trigger a shut down or reboot much more quickly than in Windows 8. On the PC's Start screen, simply right-click on the new Start button to display the familiar pop-up menu. You'll now find a shut down command at the bottom of the menu, which lets you turn off or restart your device.
