Tips for Windows 8 (got any?)

<< < (9/18) > >>

Thanks to Gizmo for telling about this free ebook from Microsoft on Windows 8:

I'm using the method described here to open the Windows Shutdown dialog from FARR.

Basically, you just have to put a shortcut to a text file called e.g. Shutdown.js with the following line

(new ActiveXObject("Shell.Application")).ShutdownWindows();

somewhere where FARR can find it.

Nice tip :up:

On a side note, it appears to work in Windows 7.

Carol Haynes:
CTRL + Shutdown does the same job too. Hold CTRL until the lights go off!

Or you can add an alias (no javascript or batch files required) with the command: c:\windows\system32\shutdown.exe -s -t 0  which will shut the computer down immediately.

That will make a complete shutdown though, not a "Windows 8 Shutdown".
