About The Slide To Shutdown Feature In Windows 8.1

Slide to Shutdown, a feature in Windows 8.1 that made news a few months ago is almost forgotten now. Though the feature went viral before Microsoft made any official statement about it, it has given way for other Windows 8.1 features online. According to the Windows 8 support experts, the slide to shutdown feature was incorporated in Windows 8.1 update to assuage the discontented Windows 8 users who faced myriads of inconveniences due to the missing Start button.
Well, the good news is that the Slide to shutdown feature is back in the news. According to an unofficial report from Microsoft, the Slide to shutdown feature would find its way to Windows 8.1 RTM. The feature would appear as an equivalent of the slide to shut down feature in popular Windows Phones.

Slide to shut down - an easy method to turn off the systems

Though Slide to shutdown feature is not making news these days, it has been approved by many as the easiest method to turn off the system. The feature was greatly appreciated in systems powered either by Windows RT 8.1 Preview or by Windows 8.1 Preview.

How to use the slide to shutdown feature

Using Slide to shut down is simple and should not cause you any trouble. To use this feature, you need to press down the power button down until the Slide to Shutdown option flashes on your monitor. Approximately, you might have to press down the button for up to 4 seconds. If your computing device is touch-enabled, you need to simply swipe down the lock screen to perform the instant shut down of the computer. If you have wondered if this feature was equivalent to the same feature in Windows Phones, it is indeed so.
Though it seems that Slide to shut down feature is compatible with all the Windows 8.1 computers, you are partially wrong. Though the feature is quite compatible with the Windows 8.1 operating systems, it is not supported in machines that do not feature the connected standby option.
Connected standby is a feature that converts your system into the model of a smartphone. If your computer has this feature, you can use it just as you can use it in your smart phone. To know how to enable the connected standby option in your Windows 8.1 system, get in touch with the Windows 8 support.
