Windows 10: How to force shutdown on laptop lid close ?
How to force shutdown on laptop lid close ?
I want to force a shutdown when the user close the laptop lid even if MSWord is open and the document was not saved.
Any suggestion ?
Win key + X/Control Panel/Power Options/Choose what closing the lid does (L column), brings you to this screen. Save Changes at bottom when done.
Welcome to the forum
If you are saying that the laptop won't shutdown because you need to choose an option to save MSWord or not then I don't think it's possible to change that procedure when the lid is closed. But, maybe someone knows a registry hack or something to accomplish it
If you want to force all running apps and software to close without saving then a Command Prompt shortcut is probably the easiest.
See the Shutdown tutorial Option 8 and decide which Command Prompt is best for you, it will probably be
shutdown /s /f /t 0
Immediately force running apps to close, and then performs a full shutdown of the computer.
shutdown /s /hybrid /f /t 0
Immediately force running applications to close, and then performs a shutdown of the computer and prepares it for fast startup
• Copy the Command Prompt
• Right click on an empty space on the Desktop
• Select New > Shortcut
• Paste the Command Prompt in the location box
• The name shutdown should appear in the box, edit that if you want
Move the shortcut to wherever you like and/or pin to Taskbar or Start

I occasionally get random force shutdown when using Windows 10 (en-gb x86). Now I encounter a program that makes force shutdown every times I using it. It is Media Creation Tool used to to download an iso image of Windows 10.
