A Good Exit
The best exit is a good exit. We don't always get what we want. But we should start trying for that then settle for less later.

In terms of your computer that means: Do not turn off your computer without exiting first.

In other words use your computer software to exit whenever possible. In some cases the computer will shut down by itself completely. In other cases, the computer will tell you when shut down is okay.

To Shut Down in a Win95:

  • Close all open programs
  • Click on Start
  • Click on Shut Down
  • Click on Yes
  • Wait for computer to shut off or tell you it's okay to turn it off.

If this process doesn't go through to completion -- i.e. gets hung up -- then wait about 5 minutes to make sure it's not going to work by itself. Then turn it off anyway. This is not the best, but we don't always get the best.
