How do you shut down Windows 10?

Me: I hit Windows + D - this minimises all windows, then press Alt+F4

Just wondering if this was the quickest way?
Any other ways?
I'd prefer keyboard shortcut

And... what's the best way to logout and switch user?
Currently this is what I do: Windows Key + D, hit the letter S twice (to select Sign Out), then press Enter

Is there a better quicker way?

Thanks.

If you click on the Start Menu, along the right side of it you have log off, switch users, and shutdown/restart options. But using a keyboard that's not really easier, using a mouse that's probably the fastest way.

@Triple6 keyboard is much much faster :)
I just find it annoying... I wanted to shave a split second off the time. LOL

time yourself as well

if any apps are unsaved, then they stop and u get a message asking if u want to force close regardless

I guess it could be quicker with a few keyboard commands but I personally like to close all my programs instead of letting Windows force close them. I'm never in such as hurry to shutdown I guess.

If you weren't opposed to using a mouse you could pin a batch/script to the task bar that you could just single click to shutdown Windows.
