What is the difference between a Restart and a Shutdown?

Restarting vs. Shutdown

When they start up in the morning they think they have done a full restart but it isn’t the same procedure. Shutting down like this will only preserve issues and problems while a Restart will reset issues and restore connections.

If your game won’t launch, first try a restart from your computer’s power menu. This step is suggested a lot, but often times, it does the trick! A lot of people shut down their machine at night.
Before you restart, save your work and close any open apps. If there’s a Power icon on your Start screen, select it, and then select Restart. Otherwise, do the following:

  1. Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then select Settings. (If you’re using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, and then select Settings.)
  2. Select Power and then Restart.
