    I have my Toshiba laptop configured to shut down immediately by pressing the power button (press once, don't hold in).

    Done. Though it will delay shutdown for 1 second, I don't think it will stop Win10 from initiating any pending updates on shutdown. Thanks.

    My PC was already set to disable Fast Startup. I do use Hibernation quite a bit during normal usage so I don't want to disable that.

    When I was troubleshooting a friend's new Win10 PC, (an Epson printer problem unrelated to Win10), it was super annoying to have Win10 do auto updates when I clicked the desktop shortcut to do a shutdown. I would have to wait up to 10 minutes sometimes for shutdown to complete. That's when I discovered that doing a (win+x) shutdown did not do Win10 updates and shutdown was fast. That friend's Win10 is running the anniversary update.

    My own PC was upgraded from the Anniversary update to the Creator' update so I'm not sure yet if that will affect the behavior of the (win+x) shutdown.

    At any rate, since discovering the difference between a desktop shortcut shutdown and a (win+x) shutdown, I wanted to find a desktop shortcut that will do the exact same thing as a (win+x) shutdown. Not a biggie but it would just save having to press (win+x) when doing a shutdown while troubleshooting problems, or when a quick shutdown is needed for whatever reason.

    Thanks,
    mck

    Does that config stop Win10 from doing updates on shutdowns?

    So then do your updates manually, I always check for updates when I 1st turn on my PC.

    There aren't (except for WD) so many updates to worry about. I'm on Insider builds so that doesn't happen too often. How often are updates for non-insiders, once every couple of weeks ?

    OK so I notice two things you guys do differently than I do and I wonder if there's really any difference.

    You guys use the minus sign where I use the / for commands. You also are using two digits for the /t command where I use three.

    like Mine is shutdown.exe /s /t 000 You guys use shutdown.exe -s -t 00

    Mine works and obviously yours works but I just wonder if there is any difference at all....

    I set up my Toshiba laptop to shut down when I press the power button one time. It shuts down within a few seconds.
