The Power User Menu can also be called the Power User Task Menu, Win+X Menu, WinX Menu, Power User Hotkey, Windows Tools Menu. It is a pop-up menu containing shortcuts to frequently used tools, providing users with a convenient way to access programs, and saving a lot of time. And it first appeared in Windows 8 and has continued into Windows 10 and Windows 11.
There are two ways to open the Power User menu.
Since Windows 8 does not have a Win icon (Start menu) on the taskbar, it does not support right-clicking, and can only use the keyboard shortcut Win+X to open the Power User Menu.
The default programs in the Power User Menu have a corresponding hotkey. Familiarity with the hotkeys of common programs can save a lot of time and improve efficiency. For example, press Win+X to open the Power User Menu, press U, then press R to Restart the system. The following are the hotkeys corresponding to each program:
|Windows+X, F||Apps and Features|
|Windows+X, B||Mobility Center|
|Windows+X, O||Power Options|
|Windows+X, V||Event Viewer|
|Windows+X, M||Device Manager|
|Windows+X, W||Network Connections|
|Windows+X, K||Disk Management|
|Windows+X, G||Computer Management|
|Windows+X, A||Windows Terminal (Admin)|
|Windows+X, T||Task Manager|
|Windows+X, E||File Explorer|
|Windows+X, U, I||Sign out|
|Windows+X, U, S||Sleep|
|Windows+X, U, U||Shut Down|
|Windows+X, U, R||Restart|
