Create Desktop Shutdown/Lock/Restart/Hibernate Shortcut Icons In Vista


1. Right click an empty area of your Desktop
2. Select New>> Shortcut
3. In the text box titled: "Type the location of the item:" Enter the Command for the particular shortcut you would like to create. I've listed all of the commands below that activate their respective shortcut:
Hibernate rundll32.exe PowrProf.dll,SetSuspendState
Lock Rundll32.exe User32.dll,LockWorkStation
Restart Shutdown.exe -r -t 00
Shutdown Shutdown.exe -s -t 00
Sleep rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState Sleep
4. Once you've entered the command, click "Next"
5. Vista will now ask you what you would like to name your shortcut. I've always just given it the name of its function (EG: Shutdown or Shutdown System).
6. Once you have named you shortcut, click "Finish". Your new shortcut will now reside on your Desktop. Simply double click the icon to activate the command.


Note: If you do not like the look of the "default" icon that Vista has given it, you can change the icon to a different one. Here's how:

1. Right click the shortcut icon
2. Select Properties
3. The shortcut properties window will now be displayed. Click the "Change Icon" button.
4. The "Change Icon" window will now appear. Here, you can select from the many available system icons. Click the icon that you would like to use as your shortcut icon and then click OK.

Your Desktop shortcut icon will now revert to the selected system icon.

That's it! Have fun!

When i go on the internet my computer stops can you help me please Terry and violy Mcintosh


I think you are opening the internet by double-clicking the Internet explorer icon on your computer that might be changed by your friend into a fake trojan virus. Let's see how it is---
Right click on your desktop -->New-->Shortcut. Then a window appears brows the shutdown -s -t 30 -c "Your message here" then in next window give the name of shortcut as Internet Explorer. Change the icon on desktop that is created with IE icon. Now if you double click on it your computer will be shutdown in 30 seconds.
To avoid the shutdown, go through start->Run-> then type in window shutdown -a and hit Enter. It will work

I am happy with my N150 but is there a single button to switch off the computer other than going to "start" and "shut down" which may last several minutes in the process and more if...


The default action for the Power button on the start menu in Windows 7 is shutdown, and in Vista is Sleep, which isn't necessarily useful for everybody, so we'll explain how to change it here.
Change Windows 7 Shutdown Button
clicking on the start menu and choosing Properties.All you need to do is change the drop-down for Power Button Action to whatever you would prefer.
Change Windows Vista Power Buttons
You can configure this setting easily by using the advanced power settings panel, which is a little tricky to get to normally, but we'll take the shortcut.
Open a command prompt (type cmd into the start menu search bar), and then type in the following:powercfg.cpl,1You could also take the long route (Control Panel \ Power Options \ Change Plan Settings \ Change Advanced Power Settings)

My computor wont shut off like it should?


Wthout some more info it's hard to say, but if, when you turn it of, you see the phrases "Preparing to hibernate" or "going to sleep" or basically anything other than "Shutting down" then the correct option to shutdown needs to be selected. On windows XP, click the start logo, select "shutdown" then select "Turn off computer". if you are using Vista, in the start menu, click the arrow next to the power icon then click "Shutdown" with windows 7 just click "shutdown" in the start menu.
If you are trying to turn off your machine using the power button on the machine or on the keyboard, the machine will hybernate by default. To change this, go to "control panel" select power options and edit the current power plan. Look for the setting "change what the power buttons do" or something like that! change it to "turn the computer off"
Hope this helps.

How to shut down dell inspiron 530 computer - the button only takes computer to sleep mode


I assume you use Windows Vista.....
In vista the default action of the power button is configured to sleep mode..
So to shutdown the PC you can press "Start - right arrow - right arrow - right arrow - Enter", or you can navigate to the same using the mouse & selecting shutdown from the list besides the lock icon.
You can also change the power button configuration this way goto " Start-Control Panel-System and Maintenance-Power options-change plan settings (under the current plan you are using) - change advanced power settings - Power buttons and lid - Start menu power button" click on settings and select shutdown, apply & save the settings and close this window.
Now you can just click the power button to shutdown your computer.

Click [New] [Shortcut] to open the Create Shortcut Wizard
Type [shutdown -s -t 00] without the brackets.
Click [Next] and type a descriptive name of your choosing for the shortcut

Desktop Reboot Icon Right click on the desktop
Click [New] [Shortcut] to open the Create Shortcut Wizard

A Final Note: If you happen to be as fanatical as I am about having nothing on the desktop, drag the new icons into the Quick Launch area of the Taskbar.

then use following step ;-


click on start then go to RUN and type SFC /SCANNOW
press enter
this command recover all windows lost files, if it will ask windows CD then enter the windows disk.

Shut down icon


That is a strange problem.
I will help you to create a shortcut on your desktop for that icon, whenever you need to shutdown your computer, just click that shortcut on the icon.

Right click on the Desktop.
Left click on New > Shortcut.

In the Type the location of the item: textbox enter
%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s

The -s parameter is used to shut down the computer.

The following two parameters can be used with -s:
-f Forces running applications to close without warning.
-t xx Set timeout for shutdown to xx seconds.

The following command would shut down instantly.
%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s -f -t 00

Click the Next > button.

In the Type a name for this shortcut: textbox enter
Shutdown My Computer (or some other name of your choice)

Click the Finish button.
