This is a handy little shortcut I use on all my desktops. It saves the hassle of clicking START, Turn Off Computer, then choosing Shutdown or Restart.
- Right Click an empty area on your desktop
- Choose New, shortcut
- In the location box, type or copy and paste this:
%windir%\system32\shutdown.exe -s -t 00
- Hit Next
- You can change the name to Shutdown, or whatever you want
- Click finish
You can do the same thing for a Restart shortcut by putting this in the location box:
%windir%\system32\shutdown.exe -r -t 00
After you've created these shortcuts, you change their icons by right clicking on them, properties, change icon, then choose from whatever pleases you...
