    Difference between shutdown /p and shutdown /s ?


    Hello,

    I followed Brink's tutorial here: Shut Down Computer in Windows 10
    And I saw that there are 2 ways to fully shutdown Windows through cmd: /s and /p.
    What is the difference between these 2, if both of them are said to perform a full shutdown?

    Thanks

    hello, the /p will stop and tell you have programs running ,and to close them before shutting down . /s will just shutdown with no warning messages if apps are running or if you a text file or such open that you might be working on ..that's the way I read it anyway

    Open Admin command and type: shutdown /?

    /p Turn off the local computer with no time-out or warning.
