Use one click to shutdown and restart Windows 8

How you can create your own one-click shutdown button for the Windows 8 Start screen.

1. Go to your desktop.

2. Right click and create a new shortcut.

3. Type in the following for a shutdown button:

shutdown /s /t 0

4. If you prefer to use a restart button instead of shutdown, type in this (t instead of r):

shutdown /s /r 0

5. Name your new shortcut, choose an icon for it, then pin it to the Task bar screen.
