Shutdown Windows Using Built-In GUI

To shutdown another networked PC, we usually perform a RDC followed by Windows Shutdown or using a one-liner script shutdown /s /f /m PCName.

Little actually knows Windows has got a built-in GUI to perform remote shutdown. To launch the "hidden" GUI, go to Command Prompt and type.
   1: shutdown /i

The above script will activate the below Remote Shutdown Dialog.

  1. The only limitations - you have admin right on remote computer in order to be able to shutdown it anf it is only for Windows 2000/XP and do not works for Windows 98.

    More universal solution is RSHUT PRO software that has no such limitations and can work for multiple computers at once allowing to remotely shutdown and wakeup computers.


Do provide your constructive comment. I appreciate that.
