Ever want a quicker way to shutdown XP without navigating through the start menu, or using a third party shutdown utility Here is a script that will do just that.
Right click the desktop and choose New Shortcut. Copy and paste this script or type it in.
%windir%System32shutdown.exe -s -t 0
Choose Next and name it whatever you like. (I named it as TURN OFF) Click Finished. Right click and choose properties and pick a Icon for it if you’d like. I used a wall light switch Icon. I draged it into my QuickLaunch toolbar for one click shutdown.
