Shutdown Icon.
    #3733722 - 02/05/05 03:14 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Here's a kind of cool trick to check out if your running XP. It allows you to have an icon on your desktop that, with a click of a button, will let you shutdown your computer.

It doesn't sound that cool, but there are a few different parameters than can be added to the shutdown function.
-i Display GUI interface, must be the first option
-l Log off (cannot be used with -m option)
-s Shutdown the computer
-r Shutdown and restart the computer
-a Abort a system shutdown
-m \\computername Remote computer to shutdown/restart/abort
-t xx Set timeout for shutdown to xx seconds
-c "comment" Shutdown comment (maximum of 127 characters)
-f Forces running applications to close without warning


So back to that Icon....
Right click on your desktop ->New ->Shortcut. This will bring up one of those wonderful windows wizards.
Type shutdown when it asks for the location of the item.
Name it whatever you want, click yes or accept or whatever the affirmitive is.

Now you have a icon, you can right click ->Properties
In the target box after "%windir%\system32\shutdown.exe " you can add the parameters.

you can also change the icon picture to something that suits you.

It's nice.
you can also send shutdown messages to other computers on your network. restart remotely, stuff like that.
