"Close a window" tip

Should "windows" in the last line, not be "Windows"?

Note from the Author or Editor:
The end of the paragraph under the 'Close a window' heading should be changed from 'shut down windows' to 'shut down Windows'.

Second paragraph, first sentence states "Windows 7's task scheduler is fairly simple...." Then next paragraph down, you state "The Task Scheduler tool in Windows 7 is complex and somewhat unfriendly..."! Which is it? :)

Note from the Author or Editor:
p.644: change "Task Scheduler is fairly simple, allowing you" to "Task Scheduler allows you"
