Shrink log files

Last Modified: 2015-06-30
I have a situation where the log files on two db's filled up a partition.
I just moved the recovery mode to simple for both of these db's

what is the next best way for it to "take action" and shrink just the logs files....
should I restart the server?
is there a less intrusive process.
