    One Button Shut Down????

    Hey y'all! Merry Merry to you!

    They told me in school, however, I forget now. What is the way to shut windows/computer down without all the mouse clicking and questions?

    Thanks,
    Sharon

    Yank the plug?

    Actually, most PCs these days will power down cleanly by pushing the power button. Really.

    Many thanks to egghead for the cool .sig

    Right click on the Desktop.
    Left click on New > Shortcut.

    http://www.tacktech.com


    In the Type the location of the item: textbox enter
    %windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s

    The -s parameter is used to shut down the computer.

    The following two parameters can be used with -s:
    -f Forces running applications to close without warning.
    -t xx Set timeout for shutdown to xx seconds.

    The following command would shut down instantly.
    %windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s -f -t 00

    Click the Next > button.

    In the Type a name for this shortcut: textbox enter
    Shutdown My Computer (or some other name of your choice)

    Click the Finish button.

    This creates a shutdown shortcut on your desktop that requires one click.
