How to write a batch file to restart windows 7 Tags: Windows 7 Shutdown Last response: October 16, 2012 8:32 PM in Windows 7 Share Adamm07x October 16, 2012 7:21:19 PM Hi i just installed a new premium theme called hud apocalypse. i love the theme except it kinda erased my shutdown/restart/logoff/switchuser default from the start menu. I was able to write a batch file to shutdown. this is the code in the batch file c:\windows\system32\shutdown -s -f -t 000 i've done a lot of google searches and alot of them say to restart via batch file and the command is Shutdown -r but this just shutsdown the computer and doesn't reboot. If anyone knows how to write a reboot batch file i would love to know it!
