    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.

    Well, the link may work in South Africa, China, USA, and in some very small countries that they don't have computers, but, it won't work here in my backyard. I did as the link shown, and did it at least five time... When I clicked on the "Shortcut"...nothing. nothing . Waited a few minutes to see if it would take effect, but zero results.

    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.

    You can pin it to taskbar or to Start by right clicking at the shortcut.

    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.
