how can i shut down or reboot my win 8.1 laptop with one command (like how windows 7 had it)
Posted on 2015-02-12
i hate the changes they made to 8.1- one thing that annoys me today is if i want to shutdown or reboot i have to click an extra c ommand in 8.1. for ex. on windows 7 i click start then shutdown and my computer goes off. or i can select start then put the mouse near the shut down box and click "reboot" and the computer reboots.
on 8.1 i click start (thanks to classic shell- if it wasnt for that app i wouldnt even have a start button) then i click shut down. then a box pops up and says "what do you want the computer to do" then i have to move the mouse to the middle of the screen and again select shut down. how can i eliminate the extra step?
i was reading online how to solve this and the most common solution is to make a shortcut to shutdown. but i want to be able to shut down by clicking the start button, not by creating a shortcut. does anyone know how?
