Windows 10 Start Button - Power/Settings/File Explorer/Account

Rick Frederickson
Computer Technician

Two things seem almost universal: people are creatures of habit and they don't handle change very well. So when computer habits get broken ... well, you get my drift.
Take, for example, the Windows 10 start button. Not only did Microsoft change it, when it changed a whole lot of other things changed, such as turning the computer on and off.
Many of you have figured this stuff out, but many more have not.
The Windows Start Button is in the lower left corner of the computer screen. It is no longer round, it is square. The start button looks like a window.
Directly above the Start Button is the Power Button. When you click on the Power Button you can shut down, restart and put the computer to sleep.
Right above that sits the Settings button. It takes you to the computers settings. This used to be called Control Panel.
Right above that is the File Explorer Button. It allows you to get into all the files on your computer, such as Documents, Pictures and other folders.
At the top of the entire stack is the Account Button. This is where you can change your account settings, log out or switch to another account that is on the computer.
