Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

New computer, not on the internet, cannot find how to turn computer off.  There is a button underneath the screen that turns this on, am I to use the same button to turn this off manually each time?

I cannot locate any other form of turning the computer off.

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!


If you use the power button to turn off the PC, that is known as a Hard Shutdown and risks corrupting the file system.

This is Win10, you shut it down through the OS.


You have to click "Start" to shut down your PC. Then you click Power, and finally Shut Down.

Good Luck
