Open Win + X (Advanced System Menu) without using keyboard or mouse on Windows 8

Windows 8 comes with a new keyboard shortcut, Windows + X, that will open the advanced system menu for power users.

As I said in the last post, I don’t want to always pulling up keyboard or mouse, so that I can open the menu.

I can easily do that by activating the on-screen keyboard.

No, no, not this one.

But this one, which you can just tap, Windows Key and X to open the advanced system menu.

If you don’t like the on-screen keyboard above, you could also go to PC settings –> General, and turn the “standard keyboard layout” on which will allow you to change the normal on-screen keyboard type to the standard one.

Now, you can press any shortcut keys that you want. Hope this helps.
