The device should be shut down using the following:
- Use the start menu in Windows (recommended when possible).
- Should you be unable to shut the device down using the Wdinwos Start menu, you can hold the power button on the top side of the device down for more than ten (10) seconds. The device will consequently shut down immediately, without waiting for open applications to close. This is not considered a "clean" Windows shut down and is thus not recommended unless completely necessary because it can harm you device.
