Vinay, Here's your answer
goto c:\windows\system32\shutdown.exe -> create a shortcut of this file on desktop ->goto the shortcut's properties ->edit its target as follows
"C:\WINDOWS\system32\shutdown.exe" -s -t 00 (do not eliminate the quotes)

you don't have to delete the original target, just add -s-t 00 after the double quotes

yup...it works...and simiarly try these combinations out...using these u can make a shot cut restart icon, log off icon etc.
-s :shuts down the PC
-l :logs off the current user
-t nn :indicates the duration of delay in 'nn' seconds
-c "messagetext" :displays a message in system shutdown menu
-f :forces any running applications to shut down
-r :reboots the PC

Hi vinay,

The process for creating shortcut of shutdown is same as described above. "C:\WINDOWS\system32\shutdown.exe" -s -t 00.

Please check the folder name and drive name [C: or D: or E: etc] of your "windows".

hi go through the following steps for better performance.

1. Right-click your Dekstop Computer and select New > Shortcut from the drop down menu
2. In the browse box type: SHUTDOWN -s -t 01, click Next
3. Type a desired name for your shortcut, click Finish
4. After completing this step, you should have a new shortcut on your desktop that allows you to shut down your computer by simply clicking on it.
5. When done verify function of the shortcut by double-clicking on it.
