Shortcut to Shutdown and Restart PC
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.
 
  1. Right Click an empty area on your desktop
  2. Choose New, shortcut
  3. In the location box, type or copy and paste this:
    %windir%\system32\shutdown.exe -s -t 00
  4. Hit Next
  5. You can change the name to Shutdown, or whatever you want
  6. 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...
