  1. does the shutdown icon look like “the time”? Then does it take you
    to sign out and does that do the final Shut Down or do you need to click the icon to the right of “sign out” to do the final shutdown?

  2. the tabs across the top of the screen that allow opening pages freezes up for no apparent reason. Sometimes it restores after I close my computer, but not always. It forces me to click on the down arrow on the right of the top bar and select the page to open. What’s wrong?
