    You don’t have to close all the Apps as you can hibernate the computer.

    TO CLOSE AN APP
    Pressing Alt+F4 will close an App. Also, clicking at the top of the screen and dragging to the bottom and then releasing the mouse button works. This also works with touchscreens using your finger. On the Desktop, move the mouse pointer off the screen to the top left corner, right-click the App’s tile to close it.

    TO SHUTDOWN
    On the Desktop, close all programs then press Alt+F4 to choose Shut down, Restart, etc.
    On either screen, press the Windows Logo key+I to show Settings then Power (at the bottom) to choose, e.g. Sleep, Shutdown or Restart.
