Shutdown windows 8 easily and quickly

Windows 8 is awesome. Android there are lots of things to do here with lots of things. It will be handy only if you are familiar with those. Shutdown is one of the features you really need to look out. In pretty much every version of Windows prior to this one, you'd click Start, then Shut Down.

Windows 8 notoriously lacks a Start button, so obviously the old rules don't apply here. There are 3 or 4 ways to shut down your PC. But none of the methods are as quick as before. So I would highly recommend you to use a tiny shortcut to shut down your Windows 8 PC. Here’s how-

-> Navigate to the desktop. Right click on the desktop and select New.
-> Shortcut. A shortcut menu appears. Enter shutdown /s /t 0 (zero) in the location box and hit Next. To restart your PC the shortcut is “shutdown /r /t 0″.
-> Enter a name for the shortcut and click Finish. A new shortcut will appear on your desktop.

That’s it. But will be great if you assign a right icon for your shutdown task. So do as I say-
-> Right click on the shortcut and select Properties. A dialog box appears.
-> Click Change Icon under the Shortcut tab then Click Ok in warning box that says shutdown.exe contains no icons.
-> Select an Icon from the list of available images Click Ok twice (once to close the Change Icon window and once to close Properties window).

Your shortcut will now have an icon. There is another thing you might be interested in. It will be a lot easier if you just pin the shortcut to your taskbar. To do that just right click the icon and select Pin to Taskbar if you want the shortcut to live on your desktop’s taskbar as well.

Be happy with your Windows 8 life.
