Don’t you think the process of shutting down or restarting the computer consumes a lot of time??
Let’s cut-short this process…its really easy :)
Just create a shortcut to “Shutdown” or “Restart” and assign a shortcut key to it.
For Creating a Shutdown Shortcut
- Right-click anywhere and in the menu, go to “New” and then click on “Shortcut“.
- A dialogue box would pop-up asking for the Target or the Location of the item for which you’re creating the shortcut.
- In that box, type “shutdown -s -t 000“. The “-t 000” in this command stands for the timer of shutdown, the “000” is the time after which Windows will Shutdown.
- Then, give a name to the shortcut which will help you to identify it.
Now, assign a shortcut key to your shortcut…
- Right-click on your shortcut that you made just now, and click on the “Properties”.
- In the “Properties“, go to the “Shortcut” tab. Look for “Shortcut Key” over there.
- In the “Shortcut Key” box, press the keys that you want to assign to your shortcut (Mine is “Ctrl + Alt + S“)
For Creating a Restart Shortcut
Follow the same steps taken for creating a Shutdown Shortcut, just replace the “shutdown -s -t 000” command with “shutdown -r -t 000” and give it a diferent name.
Then you can create a Shortcut Key using the steps given earlier.
I gurantee that if you shutdown or restart your computer using the Shortcut Keys, the time taken in the process will be 70% less than the total time that was taken before. :P
