1. Whats the difference between REBOOT and RESTART?

2. If we need to restart the laptop using the bottom RESTART in  ⊞ Win , what is the best term for it, REBOOT or RESTART? (PARDON, for such stupid stuff, but my schoolfriend, saying he is an IT-person, made me it! Brrr, try to keep our friendship safety🤷🏻‍)

Hi @lnwm07

See here

Computer reboot is the process of restarting a running computer system, either intentionally or unintentionally. Rebooting a computer can help repair Windows 10 problems like slow application response, app like word not responding, software crash, internet connectivity problems, and more. By conduct a reboot in Windows may make them work properly again.

The term restart means a reboot when computer OS turns off all programs and ends all pending input and output operations before conducting a soft reboot

Hope that answers your question!

Best, Chris
