PostSubject: Shut Down Or Restart Faster   Tue Aug 19, 2008 9:17 am

This will enable you to create buttons in your quick launch toolbar to quickly and easily shut down and/or restart your computer.

for a shut down button...
1. Right click on your desktop, scroll to new..... shortcut
2. In the location line, for shutdown type; shutdown(1 space)-s(1 space)-t(1 space)zero
Quote :
ie: shutdown -s -t 0
3. Name the shortcut "Shut Down PC" or whatever u want
4. The new shortcut is now sitting on your desktop, right click on it and go to properties, then click on "change icon". Click OK, then pick a suitable icon, there is a red "off button" icon available, then click apply and ok.
5. Now drag the icon from your desktop into the quick launch toolbar, resize the toolbar so all the buttons are visible, then delete the shortcut from your desktop.

for a restart button...
1. Right click on your desktop, scroll to new..... shortcut
2. In the location line, for shutdown type; shutdown(1 space)-r(1 space)-t(1 space)zero
Quote :
ie: shutdown -r -t 0
3. Name the shortcut "Restart PC" or whatever u want
4. The new shortcut is now sitting on your desktop, right click on it and go to properties, then click on "change icon". Click OK, then pick a suitable icon, there is a red "restart button" icon available, then click apply and ok.
5. Now drag the icon from your desktop into the quick launch toolbar, resize the toolbar so all the buttons are visible, then delete the shortcut from your desktop.

Now you can shut down or restart your pc in 1 mouse click without having to go through the startup menu.

or, with alot of the newer pc's nowerdays, you can change the settings in the 'power' menu under control panel so that pressing the 'off' button will do the same thing. either shut down, or restart the pc, depending on the setting you choose.
