Power Shortcuts is a lightweight software application built specifically for the Windows 8 users to help them enhance the functionality of their Quick Access Menu by adding additional system features.
Basically, it proves to be extremely easy to work with this tool, as you only need to install it on the computer, and it automatically adds the extra functions to the Quick Access Menu.
Power Shortcuts offers support for the following options, lock your screen, or sign out, sleep, shutdown, or restart your computer.
In order to view the changes applied to your system, you need to restart the computer. On the downside, there is no feature available for restoring the system to its default settings.
Since it doesn’t comprise any configuration settings, even rookies can master the process with just a few clicks. During our testing we have noticed that Power Shortcuts carries out a task very quickly, and no errors showed up throughout the entire process.

To sum things up, Power Shortcuts offers a simple yet powerful software solution when it comes to helping you lock your screen, or sign out, sleep, shutdown, or restart your computer directly from the Quick Access Menu. This small desktop enhancement utility can be easily configured and installed by all types of users, regardless of their experience level, as you only need to go through the installation steps to activate the program’s functions.
