You can always switch to Desktop mode to achieve a quicker and easier shut down by pressing the classic alt+F4. Or you can create a shutdown tiles that does the same thing in Metro UI. Within the Desktop mode, simply right-click the desktop in order to create a new shortcut. Type the following for its 'location': shutdown.exe -s -t 00. Then name the shortcut whatever you want. Once you see it on your desktop, launch Windows Explorer and then shift this shortcut to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs directory. The go back to your Metro UI and there you will see the Shutdown button as a brand-new tile. This will allow shutting down your PC in a single Click!
