Need interpretation of startup advice

In a recent list of fixes available online from PC Advisor, the following advice appeared as a way of rapidly starting and shutting down XP: press Windows,U,U to shut down; Windows,U,R to restart; and windows,L,L to log off.

What does 'press Windows' mean? (What is it exactly that you are meant to press?). When you have pressed it, do you then press 'comma' and then U, then comma again, then U again. Or are they all pressed together?

Thanks in advance.

The windows key on your keyboard

Just press the windows key and then UU (no need for commas). This will Shut It Down (quicker than using the mouse to do it... but only just).

The Windows key is on the bottom row to the left of the space bar - between Ctrl and Alt

Scroll down this page and it will tell you about using the Windows key - and much more
