Windows 8.1 will let you shut down from the start screen,not the little charm bar thing.
Windows server 2012 R2 preview(a bit of a mouthful-I know) is basically Windows 8.1 on a server,and is already released.
Users of Windows 8.1 will be able to shut down or restart they’re computer by using the START BUTTON!!!Yes,that’s right-THE START BUTTON.
What do you think?
