Every once in awhile I come on a workstation which only has “Logoff” or “Disconnect” through remote desktop.
What to do when you want to reboot or shutdown?
There are a few ways to do this:
1) You can use the Alt+F4 keys to bring up a shutdown window which has the options for restart and shutdown.
2) You can use the Ctrl+Alt+End keys to bring up the old Ctrl+Alt+Del menu where you can select shutdown or restart
3) You can enter: shutdown -s -t 10 to shutdown in 10 seconds or you can enter: shutdown -r -t 10 to restart in 10 seconds.
Keep in mind new operating systems will do things different such as the Ctrl+Alt+Del menu is different for windows 7.
One thing I find still works is the shutdown command.
Finally, I keep forgetting the Alt-F4 approach. I was reminded of it here.
