Windows 8 Newbie questions Shutdown + left mouse click on touchpad?


Extraordinary Member
Sorry for newbie questions:

Assume I look onto desktop: Where is the "shutdown" button/function?

Furthermore I have Samsung notebook with only one touchpad and NO separate mouse keys.
How do I simulate a double click on left mouse key?

Hi Peter,

if you place your cursor in the bottom right hand corner you'll see the Windows 8 charms appear. Click on the wheel or settings and you'll see a panel appear with options that include shutdown.

What model Samsung do you have? I have a Samsung RV511 that does have the 2 right/left keys just below the touch pad. I'm guessing that all you would have to do is double tap the touch pad in it's respective places to perform those functions.
