I have Windows 7 on my computer. Generally in order to shut down the computer you have to click Start and “shut down“. Does anyone know of a keyboard shortcut for shutting down the computer? Thank you very much. Murrar

Create a desktop shortcut with this target: C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe -S -T 0

then assign a keyboard shortcut.

Create a shortcut on the desktop. Name it Shutdown (or whatever you like). In the Shortcut target enter the string: C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe -S -T 0
Then enter a keyboard shortcut and save.

Go to the link that Jacee posted and scroll down to second section: OPTION TWO Manually Create the Shortcut It will have pictures with red arrows showing you where to type the data.
