    I've used the shortcut since Windows 7. It's saved in my Desktop folder on my data drive. I just have to right click and pin it. Old habits.

    So, I will settle for what is given...make three chicks (shutdowns) to turn the PC off.
    Use this method.
    I just tried it to confirm that it works............................

    Right click at desktop > New > Shortcut > in the box, copy/paste this.................
    %windir%\System32\shutdown.exe /s /t 0
    > click Next > click Finish.

    You now have a desktop shortcut for Shut down.

    If you want to change the ICON, click change icon and navigate to %SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll. The RED icon is in there.

    GREAT!... that works just fine for a quick Shut Down. But, when I went to turn on the PC, it taken about 4 minutes to get on the internet. Tried that several time...Start Up), same lingering time to get on. Before, all this I could press start button on PC and the Windows 10 logo would pop up within three seconds, and I'm on the internet in about 5 seconds. So, I deleted the quick Shutdown on the desktop, and went back to the original way Windows 10 had it when I installed 10. Now, I'm back to normal "real fast stsrtup, and three clicks to shutdown. I'm staying the old way... Thanks to all for the info...help.
