A Shortcut Utility To The Windows Shut Down Menu

Today, while performing site maintenance at Bookmarks4Techs.com, I featured the site 7Tutorials.

If you have not been to Bookmarks4Techs.com lately, please visit…  I have done a complete site makeover that features a tech site on a daily basis, a ton of feeds from numerous other popular tech sites, the Bookmarks4Techs Site Collection, a FREE software page, and a Tech Deals page (featuring a Tech Product Cloud). My goal has been to set this site up to automatically and dynamically change the content on a daily basis.  In other words the site is sort of on auto pilot. If you are into computers and technology, then make sure you visit Bookmarks4techs.com.  If you are a buyer at Amazon, be sure to  use Bookmarks4Techs as your launching point to Amazon.  Each time you do, it provides support to keep the site going.

What caught my attention at 7Tutorials is that they have developed a little utility program, called Shutdown Windows, that is a shortcut to the Windows shutdown menu. It appears this program is geared toward Windows 7 and Windows 8. It may work on Windows XP; however, I was unable to test it on that platform. If you do download and find that it does run on XP, leave a comment below.

Shut Down Windows

What this is especially good for, if you are like me, is if you are into customizing windows. For example, I do not use the Windows Start Menu to launch my programs. Instead, I use a program called XLaunchPad to perform that task. Shutdown Windows is a nice addition to the XLaunchPad I have setup; however, you can setup Shutdown Windows to run directly from your desktop.  Makes it real easy to shutdown your PC.

    This will be nice for Windows 8. It takes several clicks to get to the shutdown command there or a keyboard shortcut (WinKey + i, I believe) and a click.
