In Windows 8, things are a little more complicated. Move the cursor along the right side of the screen or press [Win] + [C] and select the "Parameters" item. In the sidebar that appears, click the "Shutdown" button and select the "Restart" option.

If you have Windows 8.1, you can simply open the initial screen, click the shutdown button next to your user name and select the “Restart” option. Or you can right-click on the Windows icon in the lower left corner or click [Win] + [X] and select the option “Shut down or log out> Restart.”

In Windows Vista / 7, open the Start menu with [Win], switch to the right side with [Tab], then use the down arrow to highlight the shutdown button, and use the right arrow to select the arrow icon. A menu will open in which you can select the “Restart” option using the arrows and press [Enter].

In Windows 8 / 8.1, press [Win] + [C], use the down arrow to select “Options” and press [Enter]. Then use the down and right arrows to select the “Shut Down” button and press [Enter] again.Select the “Restart” option and press [Enter] again.
