How to shutdown or restart computer Windows 8
The idea of devices with Windows 8 is that you don’t need to turn them off completely, since they can operate in low power mode – for example, when you close your laptop’s lid or press the power button on the tablet. This is the reason why the mute function is hidden.
Access to shut-off functions in several ways. The first is more suitable for users of tablet devices – slide your finger (or mouse cursor if you are on a PC or laptop) in the upper right corner of the screen to bring up the Charm Bar (you can also use the key combination Win + C) and then click on the Settings button (Settings).
The second method is to use the combination Win + I to directly open the panel with the Power button.
You can also just create your own shortcut to shutdown or restart the computer and attach them to the desktop. Right-click the mouse on the desktop, in the shortcut menu, click New (or Create), and then select Shortcut (Shortcut).
In the location box, type the appropriate command (see below).
Turn off computer
Shutdown.exe -s-t 00
Restart the computer
Shutdown.exe -r-t 00
rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState 0,1,0
When you click Next (Next) and move to the next dialog, you will be prompted to name the shortcut. Of course, it is better to give it a name appropriate to his purpose.
After clicking on the Finish button on the desktop you should see a new icon by double-clicking on that computer will immediately turn off, restart or enter sleep mode.
Next, we specify a shortcut for each function. Right-click the mouse on the icon and select Properties (Properties).
Click on the button Change Icon (Change icon) and then select from a set of icons available in the operating system. Also you can click on the Browse button (Browse) and select the icon you downloaded from the Internet.
Similar labels you can create in previous versions of Microsoft’s operating system.
Perhaps, at this point I will finish my story about how to shut down or restart the computer with Windows 8.
