    Switch off PC without mouse clicking when press the Power Button


    Hi,

    Please could someone point me to a way of making it so that when I press the Power Button on my Windows 10 desktop that the computer will power down without me having to click with the mouse to turn off various programs or clicking the "restart anyway" button that appears. I managed to do this with windows XP in the past. I think it might have been a registry alteration?

    Thanks for any advice?

    You can press power button any time to power down the computer . But it is not recommended .for several reasons one is that something may be running in the back ground The proper way to shut down a computer is to click the windows button in the bottom left then click power then it gives you three options -Restart, Sleep, Shut down. That is the only way I have ever known to power down a computer

    Thanks Jerrypc1. I have many PCs that I have lined up in a room just to use their power for processor intensive tasks. I've got them so I can get them in the right state just by pressing the power on button and waiting. I've had it before when they were on XP that I could just press the power button again on each of them to turn them off without me intervening with the mouse saving me time. Am trying to remember how I did it with XP.
