Hey dear there are different ways to shut down the windows usually we use Control-Alt-Delete then we have to select what we want windows to do shut down / reboot / log off, or lock.

it’s very easy to shut down windows 7 with Keyboard short cut keys.

Here are two ways given to shut down.

First you can use Alt+F4, and then it will show the option's box, log off-restart-shut down. Using up/down arrows, select shut down. Press "Enter".

Second way is to Press the windows key (between the alt and Ctrl on the bottom left) on the keyword and then press U again U if further ask something then alt+f4

I hope it will beneficial  for you.

wish you best of luck

There are many shortcuts to shut down your computer.

Method 1: Press ALT+F4 and then press the U button to turn it off. U is the letter corresponding to the shut down button. Normally works on XP operating system with themes.

Method 2: If the computer is in a domain or the themes is disabled. Press ALT+F4 then press S and see if it will go to shut down. or press arrow keys down or up. Press Enter afterwards.

Method 3: Open task manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and then press ALT+U. This will select the Shut Down menu on the task manager.

Method 4: This only works on XP, press WINDOWS, then U or ALT+U.

There is actually no keyboard shortcut or key on the keyboard for the shutdown function but you can set the sleep button on your keyboard to act as a shutdown button. I’m not sure if all keyboards have the sleep button but there are ones that have this button.

If your keyboard includes a sleep button, it can be programmed in the Control Panel to act as a shutdown button. By default, it is set to “Stand by” mode. You just need to set it to “Shut down” to replace its function and shut down the computer. To create the shutdown button on your keyboard, click “Start”, “Control Panel”, “Performance and Maintenance”, and then “Power Options”.

In “Power Options Properties” window, select “Advanced” tab. Under “Power buttons” section, under “When I press the sleep button on my computer”, select “Shut down” and then click “OK”.

Set sleep button to shut down

And that’s it. Now, whenever you press the sleep button on your keyboard, it will initiate a shutdown of your computer.
