The hell?! Okay, I had to retire the old computer and get another one. I got the same brand and all, but this one, little did I know, is some app type of computer? Not a problem, but where the hell are the exit buttons on the pages? It's so confusing and weird. Tell me everything you know! Lol

EDIT: It's a Laptop

My dh got a laptop with windows 8...i hate it. I havent really tried to figure it out...just enough for him to get on the internet and shut down the computet. Its all hidden, you have to move your mouse over a certain area just the right way to make the shut down appear.

Ugh, I know. I noticed the hidden stuff on the side. So stupid, IMO. Lol. I still can't find the exit button and some other things. I would have been content with a normal set up.

move your mouse into the upper right corner and get back to the main square page. then from there you should see in the upper right part of the screen a little symbol and whatever you named your computer when you set it up and the log off is there.  Good luck... I hate windows 8

It seems like now they are aiming for "fking weird" instead of "user friendly." Lol
