Windows XP Mode fullscreen has no shutdown option
Posted on 2013-05-23
I've set up Windows XP Mode under a Windows 7 Pro PC. Everything was fine until I clicked to maximize the XP Mode window.
Now, the desktop really looks like Windows XP! However, I have to hit <Ctrl-Alt-Del> to get to Task Manager; then, I can shut it down (End Task - but it hibernates). Not exactly user-friendly!
When I restart XP Mode, it automatically returns as full screen.
So my question is two parts, although either one will suffice:
1. Switch back to normal, not maximized window
Can I somehow bring this XP Mode session back to a non-maximized window?
2. Shut down without invoking Task Manager
Is there an easier sequence to shut down XP Mode (hibernate is the desired state, but a full shut down would be OK) than starting with the three-fingered salute (or right-clicking the Taskbar)?
