Shutdown windows with 1 click

There are many times when you want to shutdown your windows PC quite quickly may be because you have to go somewhere. But than, you have to to close all the applications that u have opened & than you go to start-> shutdown. I will tell a quick tip which can automatically close all the applications & shutdown ur PC in a short span of time.

Minimize all the applications & right click on free space on ur desktop. Go to New –> Shortcut.

A new window will pop up. Type there following text as it is

“shutdown /s /t 30”

Shutdown is a windows tool which is used to shutdown computer. “/t” is the option for this command & 30 means 30 seconds. So, you will get a message that ur PC will shutdown after 30 mins. This is a nice trick but sometimes you end accidentally clicking on this shortcut & you won’t be able to stop ur PC from shutting down. So, you can create another shortcut which can override this timer. Follow the same step as mentioned above. This time type the following text

“shutdown /s /a”

“/a” is one the parameter for the shutdown function which tells the system to abort the PC shutdown. Hope you like this trick. Please leave a comment whether you liked it or not.
