    Just to tell you, i have Classic Shell installed,
    but still there is nothing like this you said


    on my old windows it did just "Start/shutdown"
    and it did shutdown .... without anything else .. i know it works somehow

    Classic shell might be your problem then

    Why do you have classic shell? There's no gain.

      on my old installation was classic shell as well installed.
      a guy turned this prompt window off somehow, but i forgot how


      i dont like the original windows 10 start menu, thats why.

      i gonna do a clean installation from windows10 now on a virtual machine and see
      if this shuts down instantly or not.


      i got it, you was right it was classic shell
      i had to choose windows 7 style to have a instant shutdown


      anyway, thanks fot you guys to help me find this out :smile:

        The simplest way is to open the windows command line (or Powershell) and enter the following string:

        shutdown /f /s /t 0

        This command will send the shutdown signal to the OS, force close any running applications/prompts and has a delay time of 0. The 0 can be replaced for any duration of time you wish (to schedule a shutdown).

        To open the command prompt, press the Windows Logo key + R (opens the run prompt) and type cmd. Alternatively, you can browse to your windows directory and open cmd.exe directly.

        If you change your mind about shutting down (when a delay timer is set) enter: shutdown /a to abort the shutdown.

        To restart, you can use:

        shutdown /f /r /t 0

        You can throw any of these commands into a .bat or .ps1 file to automate fast shutdowns/restarts.

        NOTE: This is version independent, and should work on any modern Windows installation. I have never used it on any NT/2000 or 2003 machines, but hopefully no one is still using those :pain: This is basically what your OS is executing when you select the GUI shutdown options
