Make logoff, shutdown and restart

The most common or always using by MS windows users are shutdown, restart, and log off action. Now you will make 3 button for those action in your desktop for easy access.

Make restart, shutdown and log off button in desktop are very helpful for speed action specially is you are work for hide some things from the other view or to leave very soon from computer.

For MS windows users usually for doing those actions we should go to start, log off/turn of computer and select which action you need (log off/ switch user, shutdown, restart etc).

At least we need to click 3 times for one action, but in this section only one single click for each action (shutdown, restart and log off) because this action are the most often using by users.
why 3 only because there is main reason for only 3:

Shutdown is always recommended for housing users for save energy reason (wisdom habit not to leave computer with out activities in on condition.

Restart required always last action after installation with auto action or manual actions.

Log off if the computer for many of user(like office, school etc) it means if you have this fast log off button for quick action and leave it the computer lock condition with in one second.

So basically we reduce 3 action to single action for each action.

how to do it.
1. Search for file shutdown.exe and send it to desktop to create shortcut and rename with shutdown or what ever you like. Usually default directory on: c:/windows/system32.
2. Repeat no:1 for rundll32.exe, and rename by log off.
3. Copy shutdown and paste it in desktop and rename with restart.

Now you have 3 new files in your desktop with name shutdown, restart, and log off.To control running properly of those 3 buttons you must little tweak each file by right on file, select properties and just copy the apropriate code in target area.
Shutdown: C:\WINDOWS\system32\shutdown.exe -s -t 00 -f
Restart: C:\WINDOWS\system32\shutdown.exe -r -t 0
Log off: C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe user32.dll, LockWorkStation

Then you can change the picture each of it with common picture in shell32.exe or with your picture.
now the 3 power button are ready for action.
