    I had never seen the Task Manager on the Taskbar. I just never paid attention.

    Whenever I wish to access the Power Users menu I simply use Win + X. It seems quicker for me. There is a wealth of stuff on this menu. No need to drill down to it in a Start Orb any more. Task Manager is just one of the 15 items plus Desktop that are available in this simple to use menu.

    I do not know a whole bunch of keyboard shortcuts, just a few simple ones I do all the time. Actually, people that use their PC's professionally usually have learned the keyboard keystrokes for doing their work as they seem to think not leaving the keyboard is quicker than using the mouse.

    For myself, Ted, I find it's a combination of the 2, mouse & keystrokes. Nor is it even all that consistent or rigid which I will use @ any given moment.

    And, yes, I keep urging people to be aware of & use the Power Users Menu. It sure does make things easier than ever to access & some nice additions to it in Win8.1

    Cheers,

    The discussion has come up before, on forums all over.
    Weakness or whatever, I have always been a point and click user. I have my right hand on my mouse. Laziness? I am reluctant to give up that comfortable position, to use my fingers on the keyboard for normal operations.

    "I had never seen the Task Manager on the Taskbar"

    Surely? I am not sure, and cannot verify, but I think the right click for the taskbar has been there for several generations of OSs?

    Yes, it has, David. Nor am I ever saying you should use keyboard shortcuts or one should mouse. It's an either or thing and whatever a person grows to like, prefer or find comfortable. Some are not even aware of (all) the Keyboard shortcuts. Has always been my desire to let people know they exist and what they are. From there they can use some, all or none, as they choose. As I said, personally, I use both and that use tends to vary, ie sometimes I may hit (Clk) the Refresh icon for a browser page and sometimes I may hit F5, etc, etc.

    Cheers,
