    Shutting Windows 8 down in one click, very easy shutdown.

    Windows 8 is very frustrating to shut down, but if you want a 1 click solution to shut the computer down, it doesn't offer restart or anything like that, it just shuts straight down!


    1. Go to your Desktop
    2. Create a New Shortcut - do this by right clicking on the desktop, choose New Shortcut
    3. put shutdown /s /t 0 - into the create shortcut
    4. Enter a name you want to call it - I went with the creative name of Shutdown
    5. Click Finish


    If you want an icon for the shortcut:
    1. Right click new shortcut
    2. Choose Properties tab
    3. Then choose the Change Icon - decide on an icon you like
    4. Once you've chosen your icon, drag the new shortcut down to the Taskbar and pin it there, then you just have to press it and the computer shuts down!

    Windows 8 re-start with one click.

    If you want to Restart instead of Shutdown in step 3 put:

    shutdown.exe /r /t 0

    the /r - is for restart
