How To Create One Click Shutdown and Restart Shortcuts

Leave a Comment Follow me on twitter

Shutting down a personal computer does not involve any tedious process though, but the entire process can be reduced to a simple One Click Shutdown & Restart.This gives you a quicker way to shutdown windows without navigating through the start menu, or using a third party shutdown utility. You can also do much more with a shutdown shortcut than merely shutting down a personal computer. Adding combination of several switches can do extra duties for you with shutdown shortcut.

Right Click on desktop and choose New, and then Click on Shortcut.
The create shortcut wizard appears. Type Shutdown into the box as the location, afterward click on next. Type any name for the shortcut (in my case I typed Turn Off Computer) and click Finish.

what we have to do now is to add combination of switches for the shortcut to perform the action that we want. Right Click on the shortcut you just created and choose properties. Within the Target box you will find this command %windir%\system32\shutdown.exe. Place the cursor at the end of the command (i.e after the last e of the .exe) and press space. Add -S -f -t 00 to the command. You will have something similar to this %windir%\system32\shutdown.exe -S -f -t 00

click on Change Icon button and pick an icon of your choice for the shortcut. Click on ok after everything and double click on the shortcut to shutdown you computer..

If your computer fail to shutdown, cross check your switches and make sure there are spaces between all the switches.

Drag the shortcut to your Quick launch Toolbar for One Click Shutdown.

You can also give it a keyboard shortcut. By pressing key combination (eg CTRL + ALT + S) will perform the action.

Switches and Meaning:

You can use any combination of the following switches to make the shortcut to perform different actions..

Shuts down the PC.

Logs off the current user.

-t 00
Indicates the duration of delay, in seconds, before performing the action.

-c "message"
Displays the message in the System Shutdown window. A maximum of 127 characters can be used. The message must be enclosed in quotation marks.

Forces any running applications to shut down.

Reboots the PC.

Display the shutdown interface (GUI). MUST be the first option!

The following command will reboot your PC after ten-seconds delay and display the message "Will Be Back Soon"
%windir%\system32\shutdown.exe -r -f -t 10 -c "Will Be Back Soon"

But you can do much more with a shutdown shortcut than merely shut down your PC. You can add any combination of several switches to do extra duty, like this:

shutdown -r -t 01 -c “Rebooting your PC”

Double-clicking on that shortcut will reboot your PC after a one-second delay and display the message “Rebooting your PC.” The shutdown command includes a variety of switches you can use to customize it. Table 1-3 lists all of them and describes their use.

I use this technique to create two shutdown shortcuts on my desktop—one for turning off my Windows, and one for rebooting. Here are the ones I use:

shutdown -s -t 03 -c “Bye Bye Aniket!”
shutdown -r -t 03 -c “Ill be back Aniket !”

Having any problem?

How To Hide Your Files using Simple Softwares

Leave a Comment Follow me on twitter

Here are a few simple software that allow the lay PC user to hide/protect files and folders for prying eyes.

Let’s be honest here, we all have something... or ‘other’ on our laptops and home PCs that we don’t really want anyone to see. We try to tuck them away into the ‘nether-est’ - for lack of a better term - regions of your computers software, away from the prying eyes of the folks at home or the girlfriend who as it turns out just might not be too happy with you having pictures of your exs. 
So what do you do? 
Hide the files of course. 
Of course there’s the traditional method of right clicking on the folder or files and selecting the Hide option and then choosing the ‘Do not show hidden files and folders’ option from the Tools, Folder Options menu. But of course this, in all probability, you already knew. But another simple technique is to create a Zip file or RAR file and password protect it.

But let’s stay clear of the conventional. So for those of you who aren’t hardcore software geniuses but are looking to keep things really simple yet secretive here are a few freeware apps you can use.

Hide Folders


One of the simplest software to use is the Hide Folders. It’s not rocket science really. The application is easy to use and involves nothing more than selecting folders you want hidden and that’s that. A password system allows you to make sure that no one can access the software itself to un-hide the folders you’ve selected. Each time you try to access the software, which could even be a shortcut on the desktop for the world to see, you’ll need to enter the password.

Download Hide Folders:

Iron Privacy Folder


It’s a small app that doesn’t take up too much place or RAM and is extremely simple to use. The only thing is that it’s a little too simple. What this software does is hide and sort of “deflect”, well re-direct is a more appropriate term, prying eyes to the Control Panel. This is only in case you’ve got your View Hidden Files and Folders option active on Windows. The only problem is the application doesn’t have a password protection option so anyone can access it if they know here the folder is and unlock it.

Download Iron Privacy Folder: 

Folder Protector


It’s just another simple protections system for the paranoid or the secretive. It’s a lightweight program that is simple and easy to set up and use. It starts off with you of course having to assign a password for the software. This ensures that you and only you have access to the system. Once in you can simply select folders from your computers directory and hide them. Again it’s a simple trick. The folders may show up when you Hide and Unhide folders and files from the Windows settings but they won’t be accessible to anyone without going through the software via the password.

Download Folder Protector:

Encrypt Files


Although there are plenty of thoroughly computer literate and PC savvy individuals, like I said this is for those looking for simple solutions that are quick and easy to manage so although the name may suggest ‘Encryption’ which could make a lay person believe that it requires some skill for usage, this software is easy as pie. It allows users to put a security password on the application itself so no one can access and hide data on your PC from any drive. There are choices of encryption options for those who know what they’re doing but you can randomly select any for those who don’t. The software allows you to shred or delete the original files and keep the encrypted copies. The copies can also be hidden when encrypted and password protected. It allows for encryption of full directories but not entire drives.

Download Encrypt File:

There are others out there if you look hard enough of course, however don’t be surprised if most of the software you come across save these, would end up being Shareware that offer evaluation periods of 30 days and require registration (Credit Card or PayPal accounts required) later. Like I said before, sometimes it’s really simply and there are dreadfully easy ways to keep your data secure and then sometimes you need a little more of stringent policy to keep the nosy people out of your affairs.

For those who have other FREEWARE options they’d like to suggest please feel free to leave the names in comments section..!!
