    Plex media server on Windows --How do you shut it down properly.

    Hi there

    I can't see any way of stopping PLEX Media server on Windows - simply closing the web client doesn't shut the program down - it's still there in the background.

    On Linux it's easy --just a command similar to service plexmediaserver stop / start / restart.

    I really don't want to have to go into CTRl_ALT-DELETE and mess around with taskmanager.

    Surely there should be some way of decently manually stopping the service.
