Quick Tip: How To Enable “Slide To Shutdown”

This is more a trick than a tip; but, once implemented, it is a quick way to shut down your Windows 10 computer.

Here’s how to do this:

Right-click on the desktop, and select  “New”, then select “Shortcut”. In the windows that pops up, paste the following line of code: %windir%\System32\SlideToShutDown.exe

THEN, select “Next”, THEN “Finish”… The shortcut will be created on your desktop. If you click on the shortcut a slide down of the screen will appear from the top. If you grab the slide down with the mouse pointer and pull down, the computer will shut down.

What I did on my PC was “right mouse click” on the shortcut I created, pinned it to the taskbar and then deleted the shortcut from the desktop. This makes it handy to perform the shutdown without having to go directly to the desktop.
