·   Then, you’ll be able to know and tell about how to create a shut down in your computer (Pc).

Windows Xp/vista/7
1. Create a new shortcut on your desktop. Right-click on your desktop. Hover the cursor over “new” and click “shortcut” on the next menu that appears.

2. Enter the shutdown command. Copy and paste the following into the text field: shutdown.exe –s
·   To create a restart shortcut, replace “-s” with “-r” (“shutdown.exe –r”).

3.  Adjust the shutdown timer. Without changing any settings, the shutdown shortcut will shut down the computer after 30 seconds. To change the timer, add “-t  ××× to the end of the command. ××× represents the number of seconds delay you want prior to shutdown. For example: shutdown.exe –s –t 45 will create a shortcut that shuts down after 45 seconds.
·   To add a “goodbye” message, type –c “your message” (including the quotation marks) at the end.

4. Type a name for the shortcut. Click “finish” when done.

5. Change the icon. If you’d rather have a custom icon instead of the default program icon that windows assigns, right-click the shortcut and choose “properties”. In the shortcut tab, click the change icon button. Choose an appropriate icon and then click OK to confirm.

6. Double-click the shortcut to initiate shutdown. You’ll see a window counting down and your message will be shown. Once the timer runs out, all your programs will start to close and windows will shut down.

Tips:
·   To abort (stop) the shutdown, go to the start menu, click Run, and type shutdown –a. you could even create an “abort shutdown” shortcut, too!
·   This code closes each and every program and then shuts down – the way windows shuts down when you do it via the start menu. If you want to avoid the countdown and trigger the shut down instantly, use shutdown –s –t 00. Don’t worry, if you have documents open, you’ll still be given the opportunity to save your work.
·   Use this to create a Shut down computer prank!
