I have 'shutdown' as a desktop icon (%windir%\system32\shutdown.exe -s -t
00), but I need 'restart' also. Used to have, but seem to have lost it.
Appreciate a post
Dan

Hi,

Make a shortcut with this in the command line:

shutdown.exe -r -t 00

ok......find an icon on your desktop........
now........right click on desktop....and go.....paste

right click the icon.....and go .....rename.....call it......shutdown

right click the icon......and go to properties

you see the box that says......target ?

copy this line into that box......

%windir%\system32\shutdown.exe -s -t 00

now.....just under that......

start in .......

copy this to that box

%windir%

3 buttons at the botton.......

click on.....change icon......pick one that you like and will remember

apply.....then ......ok


the same applies for a restart button, just change the target coding to:

%windir%\system32\shutdown.exe -r -t 00

there ya go
