All operating systems, after being in operation for a while, and especially if we open and close many applications, eventually stop working properly. This problem is not due to the equipment itself, but rather to the different resources that our equipment has to use to function properly.
Surely on more than one occasion, you have heard about "you restart that and that's it." That statement is usually, in 99% of cases, a truth like a temple. However, if our computer has been on for many days without restarting, it may be time to do it. The problem occurs when he does not want to do it.
If our equipment does not respond when restarting or simply does not want to turn off, we do not have to wait until if our computer is a laptop the battery runs out or unplug it from the power if it is a desktop computer, since we have other solutions that practically they have the same effect but in a different way.
- The first method that we can use is to press and hold the power button on our equipment for enough seconds for the equipment to turn off completely.
- Another solution is create a shortcut on our desktop so that by clicking on it, give the necessary instructions to our team to close all the processes that we have open and proceed to shut down.
This last process works most of the time. If you don't, we must turn to the first of all, the one that never fails. But if what we want is for our computer to restart without having to turn it off because the start menu does not respond, we can also create a shortcut to restart it as we explain in this other article.
