Performing Shutdown


Recommended Posts

Why yes there is, kind of.... this is what I do and use......

I have created two new shortcuts on my desktop.

One is called Restart Windows and the other Shutdown windows.

Here is the code that you need to put as the target in the shortcut to restart windows:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\shutdown.exe -r -t 01

Here is the code that you need to put as the target in the shortcut to shutdown windows:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\shutdown.exe -s -t 01

You can change the 01 in the code to give you more time before it shuts down. 01 means one second.

Once you create the shortcuts you can change the icon if you like to match the restart arrow and the shutdown button by pointing the change icon to the file located at %SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll from there you can choose the one you like.

Hope that makes sense for you.

Click on the Desktop then:

1.Alt + F4


You do have Show desktop in the lower right on the Taskbar?

I hope you are not using Full Screen on your windows in Windows?
