Mike,

         Regardless of the Windows tool in question, if it's related to disk scanning and repair there is virtually always a command line interface for it.  Do a web search using your preferred search engine on the version of windows you're using and the tool you're using with the words command line added in the search criteria and you typically get pages and pages of examples.  You can definitely redirect output to a log file, too.

With focus on the desktop you can just press alt f4.

From anywhere, just press Windows Key.  I follow with up arrow twice.

That puts you on the Power Button.  Pressing it gives you the choice of restarting, shutting down, or putting the laptop into “sleep” mode.

The Windows key followed by up arrow twice does not work for me, I think it depends on how you have customized your start menu screen.

Definitely Alt+F4 from the desktop works, but Windows Key+X followed by U and then by “U” or “R” depending on whether you want to shutdown or restart works consistently for me as well. Not sure, Joseph, why it isn’t reliable for you.

If you want to use Alt+F4 you actually can be on the desktop, the start button, the cortana “Ask me anything” button or the taskbar, it works from any of these areas. I find it easiest to use Windows Key+M or Windows Key+D to first get to the desktop, then Alt+F4.

Hi,

Windows key followed by pressing up arrow twice isn’t reliable because:

  • Customized Start menu layout for different people (you can have a full screen experience, you can rearrange tiles, and you can hide certain parts (the last one is destined for spring 2017)).
  • The overall layout of Start menu is different between Windows 10 releases (the one that is seen in builds 10240 and 10586 is different than that of 14393).

 

You may recall some forums talking about inability for users to find power button in Start menu when build 14393 (Anniversary Update) was first released (August 2016). This is because the overall layout of the Start menu has changed from prior Windows 10 releases (and this is why using the Start menu method is unreliable). I can tell you that certain parts of Start menu (and majority of Windows+X menu shortcuts) has changed in Creators Update (the next major Windows 10 release scheduled to go live in a few months).

I’d say Windows+X method is more reliable and is fast, as this can be invoked from anywhere, with desktop/Alt+F4 method being a good backup procedure.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi,

I hit the windows key, tab twice to start button, arrow down 4 times to "power" and hit enter, then arrow down twice to "shut down", or three times to "restart".

From anywhere, just press Windows Key.  I follow with up arrow twice.

That puts you on the Power Button.  Pressing it gives you the choice of restarting, shutting down, or putting the laptop into “sleep” mode.

Mike,

         Regardless of the Windows tool in question, if it's related to disk scanning and repair there is virtually always a command line interface for it.  Do a web search using your preferred search engine on the version of windows you're using and the tool you're using with the words command line added in the search criteria and you typically get pages and pages of examples.  You can definitely redirect output to a log file, too.

Hi,

This method isn’t working on my computer. However, if I do:

  1. Press Windows key.,
  2. Tab once.
  3. Press down arrow three times.
  4. Press ENTER.

Then I’m presented with options. To me, this proves that other alternatives are more reliable at this time.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi,

I hit the windows key, tab twice to start button, arrow down 4 times to "power" and hit enter, then arrow down twice to "shut down", or three times to "restart".

Hi,

Windows key followed by pressing up arrow twice isn’t reliable because:

  • Customized Start menu layout for different people (you can have a full screen experience, you can rearrange tiles, and you can hide certain parts (the last one is destined for spring 2017)).
  • The overall layout of Start menu is different between Windows 10 releases (the one that is seen in builds 10240 and 10586 is different than that of 14393).

 

You may recall some forums talking about inability for users to find power button in Start menu when build 14393 (Anniversary Update) was first released (August 2016). This is because the overall layout of the Start menu has changed from prior Windows 10 releases (and this is why using the Start menu method is unreliable). I can tell you that certain parts of Start menu (and majority of Windows+X menu shortcuts) has changed in Creators Update (the next major Windows 10 release scheduled to go live in a few months).

I’d say Windows+X method is more reliable and is fast, as this can be invoked from anywhere, with desktop/Alt+F4 method being a good backup procedure.

Cheers,

Joseph

The Windows key followed by up arrow twice does not work for me, I think it depends on how you have customized your start menu screen.

Definitely Alt+F4 from the desktop works, but Windows Key+X followed by U and then by “U” or “R” depending on whether you want to shutdown or restart works consistently for me as well. Not sure, Joseph, why it isn’t reliable for you.

Hello,

 

I use my defined hot key combination (ctrl+alt+s) to shutdown Windows.

 

Windows 7 always shutdown, regardless of whether there was any running application.

With Windows 10, I sometimes get a dialogue box to ask if I want to shutdown while there is still an application running.

 

I created a desktop shortcut to point to the shutdown.exe executable. This I named “shortcut”.

 

In the shortcut, the target field has:

    C:\windows\system32\shutdown /s /t 00

 

The defined hot key is: ctrl+alt+s

 

As I said, in Windows 7, the shutdown went ahead even if there was an open application. In Windows 10, I get the warning to save any data before shutting down. This is an extra step.

 

Perhaps there is a Windows 10 command line option to force the shutdown at all times.

Perhaps there is a command line option to do a reboot. If I knew, I would create a reboot shortcut.

 

There was another problem with Windows 10. The directory tree did not list the shutdown.exe file in the windows\system32 folder. If it was, it would be easy to right click it and send it to the desktop.

 

I knew that shutdown.exe was there by using the dir command on the command prompt.

So I copied the shutdown.lnk file from windows 7 and put it into the Windows 10

    users\peter\desktop folder.

 

If anyone knows how to make the shutdown command line force a shutdown of Windows 10, or do a reboot, let me know.

 

Another way to do the shutdown, using Windows 10 was not mentioned.

This is from memory.

 

Highlight the Start Menu

Use the application key to do a right click

Arrow up and select the shutdown menu (or is it power)?

Arrow down and select either shutdown or reboot.

I am astounded at this plethora of ways to shut down 10,
when all I ever have known and done in any Windows program
is Alt F4 until I was there. I don't know why, but for some
reason I do hit Enter twice.

Bye for now,

Carolyn

Hi,
I'm not in front of my Windows 10 machine at the moment, so I can't test this exactly, but some things I would consider are:
  • In "Advanced power settings" (or something like that) you can set "What to do when I press the power button;" in there, "Shut down" is an option. Then, the physical power button on your computer can be used to shut down.

  • If you press the Control + Alt + Delete keys, the system should bring up a "system security" menu, which allows you to do things like lock, sign out or shut down. The shut down menu option is usually the last item on this screen, so Shift + Tab might get you right to it.

  • I also like the Alt + F4 option... you can press the Windows + D key to show desktop at anytime, then Alt + F4 to shut down.

Take care,

Thomas
