    How to create a reboot shortcut?


    I found that one can shorten the steps of shutting down windows by creating a shortcut on the desktop.
    by using this command "%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe /s /t 0"
    The shutdown exe file can be found in the directory above. I thought I may be able to create a similar shortcut but there is no 'reboot.exe' file in this directory so I assume it must have a different name. There are 4 files with the word 'boot' in it perhaps it is one of those. Can anyone help me with this?
    Thanks

    Use same command but use /r instead of /s.
    Good information here:

    Just for clarity:

    /f = This option forces running programs to close without warning. Except with the /l, /p, and /h options, not using shutdown's /f option will present a warning about the pending shut down or restart.
