It's always sweet to have a process simplified in number of steps.Whenever you shut down your computer,you have to always go to Start->Turn off Computer->Shutdown.But there is a simple methgod to do all this in a single click.The following tip explains it.

1.Create a shortcut on your desktop by Right Click->New-> Shortcut. This shows the Create Shortcut Wizard.
2.Type "shutdown" where it asks for the location of shortcut.Name it as you like.
3. After you have created the shortcut, double-clicking on it will shut down your computer.

You can do many more things with a shutdown shortcut than merely shut down your PC. You can add any combination of several options to add extra functionality, like this:

In the location for shortcut, instead of "shutdown",type this
shutdown -r -t 31 -c "Rebooting your PC"
Double-clicking on that shortcut will restart your computer after a delay of 31 displaying the message "Rebooting your PC". You can put anytime you like to schedule your shutdown process.

You could append the following switches to "shutdown" with their functionality a mentioned.
-s Shuts down the PC.

-l Logs off the current user.

-t nn waits for 'nn' seconds before performing the action.

-c "messagetext" Displays 'messagetext' in the System Shutdown window with amaximum of 127 character.Don't forget to enclose the message text in quotation marks.

-f Forces any running applications to shut down.

-r Restarts the computer.
