Quick Shutdown and Quick Restart

Recommended Posts

Quick Shutdown or Reboot shortcut

You can shut down Windows with a double-click instead of having to navigate the entire Start / Shutdown / Shutdown / OK sequence. Right-click on your desktop and select New / Shortcut. You will see the Create Shortcut wizard. In the field labelled Type location of the item enter the following command:

 

 

 

Shutdown -s -t 0

 

Click Next. Enter a name for the shortcut, e.g. Quick Shutdown. Click Finish. If you want to replace the generic icon for your new shortcut, right-click on it, select Properties, select the Shortcut tab, click Change Icon, and select the desired icon.

 

You can also create a shortcut for a quick restart. Follow the instructions above, but enter the following command instead:

 

Shutdown -r -t 0

 

Here is an example of a finished desktop....Dial up warning, large photo.

 

Enjoy! :beer:

"If you know the source where you first came accross the item, please give credit and post a link! Most of the tips in here are not going to be original, so we need to give credit when we can."

 

Don't forget. Nice tip too :tup:. I'm gonna have to use it because Windows needs to reboot for everything.

I think this tip originated inside of X_C's brain. :)

 

Sometimes wehn I want a quick shutdown I either hit the sleep button on my keybaord and the computer shuts down in about 1 second. Othertimes I will just yank the plug out. < don't try this if you can't fix a messed up Windows install though. :P

That very tip has been around for several years. I remember reading about it some years back, but I can't remember where.

 

X_C was the first to post it here though, to his credit.

 

X_C, don't count my comments as anything other than the bold red text at the top of the forum.

I don't think reviving a 5 year old thread, that's not been added to for over 3 years is really moving on!! Posted Image

 

I see most people have also thanked the OP after pointing out it was already posted, at the time.
