Shutdown/Restart Your PC from a Shortcut

It is very easy to create a shortcut to shutdown or restart your PC on the desktop:
  • Right-click an empty area on the desktop (or choose any folder), then select 'New>Shortcut'.
  • In the Shortcut Wizard, in the location box type "shutdown -s -t 01" (to shutdown your computer) or type "shutdown -r -t 01" (to restart your computer).
  • Press the 'Next >' button, then give the shortcut a name (for example: "Shutdown Computer" or "Restart Computer") and then press the Finished button.
Then all you have do is double-click the shortcut, and your computer will shutdown or restart itself depending on what shortcut you created.
