How many of you hate the new Shut Down location in Windows 8? Unless you have the start menu its a real pain in the butt to simply restart or shut down your computer. For that reason I have short cut that I simply tap on my Windows touchscreen and it performs the shut down sequence for me.
To create the shortcut – Right-click and go to New > Shortcut.
For location of the new shortcut, enter the following command:
shutdown /s /t 0
Click Next, and name the shortcut as Shut Down (or anything you like).
You can also customize the icon if you want. Pretty simple.
