...why is it unsafe to turn off your computer without properly shutting it down?

It's something that we all do without thinking, but why do we have to shut down our computers? Why can we not simply press the button?

I'm sure all you techies know why but I don't so...

Howdy,

So that the PC can put all the files back it was using and save any changes that have been made and also save what you were working on .......PCs like to be tidy ....unlike my offspring

Yes that also...but when the PC starts up it is using files from different locations.....so when you do a normal shut down it goes through stopping those programs one-by-one.....

Think of it this way would you stop a motor by pulling all the plug wires off and cutting the fuel line or turn it off at the switch.
