Windows 10 is a dynamically operating system. In fact, it is possible to customize it according to our tastes and needs. Some of them are the ability to create shortcuts to execute different tasks. In fact, it is possible to create a shortcut that works as a button to shut down the operating system. Although it is true that this task is done through the start button, having another option is very interesting. Sometimes we are in a hurry and want to turn off the equipment quickly. In such cases, it is helpful to have an alternative and quick means of shutting down the system. For that reason we’ll see how to create a shutdown button in Windows 10.

How to create an shutdown button.

First, note that it is possible to create custom buttons. That is, we can create shutdown, restart and hibernation buttons. But for this specific case, we’ll start with the off button. With this intention, right click on any blank space on the desktop and select the option New>Shortcut

Create a new shortcut

Immediately a window will be displayed where the location of the Item must be added. Please add the following text:

 Shutdown.exe /s /t 00 
Creates the shortcut to the shutdown button
Creates the shortcut to the shutdown button

In the following box, assign the name to the shortcut button. For ease of use use an easy to remember name like Windows Shutdown

Assign the name to the shutdown button
Assign the name to the shutdown button

Finally you can see the button actually created on the Windows desktop.

Other buttons available.

As mentioned above, there are other options for creating buttons. We will then detail the options available:

  • Shutdown.exe /r /t 00. Reboot Windows 10
  • rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState 0,1,0. Suspend the operating system
  • rundll32.exe PowrProf.dll,SetSuspendState. Hibernate the system
  • rundll32.exe User32.dll,LockWorkStation. Lock down the system.

Conclusion

Ultimately we have seen how to create a shutdown button in Windows 10. This way, we have a quick option to disconnect power from the system. Likewise, we saw different button options for Windows 10. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Before saying goodbye I invite you to see our post about protecting files and folders with password in Windows 10.
