    Shutdown shortcut can't use F4


    I want to know if it's possible to make a 2 key shortcut like Alt F4 to shutdown the computer.

    I can't use Alt F4 as the F4 key is mapped to screen share so if I dont want to use the mouse I end pressing winduws key plus x then tab down to sign out and shut down which seems a bit long winded.

    TIA Bart

    Slightly less 'long winded', look carefully at the win+X menu. Notice that the 'u' is underlined in 'Shut down or sign out' ?

    Instead of using lots of tabs, just press the U key, then it will be I for 'Sign out' or U for 'Shut down'.

    I have a Shutdown.exe next to the Start Menu, then it's just TabTabEnter.

    You can make a Shutdown icon by entering %windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s -f -t 00 as Target.
