Shutdown Or Restart Your Server

With the Start menu missing in action, and shutdown and restart commands missing from the new Start screen, how to restart or shut down your server might not be immediately obvious. The quickest way is to press 'Windows+I', and click the Power button at the bottom of the Settings panel to access restart and shutdown commands.

Alternatively, in Windows Server 2012, the power commands are also available by pressing 'Windows+X', or by right clicking on the Start button.
