Hello. I don t think you can shut down multiple computers at the same time. But there is a command that will shutdown your computer after a set delay.

shutdown -s -f -t XX where "xx" is the number of seconds after which your computer will shutdown.

You can still cancel this process by typing shutdown -a at Run.

Tell me if it helped. Best of luck!

You can have the batch run at a certain time with schedule tasks.
