3. Managing Server 2012 > Logging Off, Restarting, and Shutting Down

Logging Off, Restarting, and Shutting Down

The lack of a Start button has made the simple tasks of logging off, restarting, or shutting down Server 2012 rather unintuitive. You perform all of these actions differently than you did in Server 2008 R2.

To log off and log in as another user, click the current user’s name in the upper-right corner of the Start screen. From there, click “Sign out.” You can also choose to lock the screen. When the screen is locked, the option to “Switch user” is displayed—which is another way to log off and on again with a different account.

To shut down or restart, bring up the Charms menu and click Settings. At the bottom of the Start submenu that appears, there are six icons, one of which is Power. Clicking this icon gives you the choice to either shut down or restart the server.
