    An easier method ( at least for those who have dealt with Windows for a long time) is to move your mouse to the lower left corner and right click. Many of the administrative options will be listed in a context menu. For those who are having a hard time making the adjustment to Windows 8 from previous versions, you can consider something like ClassicShell, or wait for the Windows 10 release
