In addition to what Windows 10 offers as a basic operating system, it still has some surprises within it. We talk about DOS, PowerShell and even Linux and what they can offer the user.
Today we bring a command that can be useful at times. We talk about the possibility of shutting down Windows 10 at a scheduled time or at the end of the desired time. They just need to calculate the time and execute the right command.
Managing Windows 10 is not complicated, as long as you know the right tools and commands. This is an extensive list, but it can help users at the right times. Everything is in the right place, waiting to be used.
Simple to shut down Windows 10 at the right time
To be able to shut down Windows at the right time, just use the shutdown command with the correct parameters and which are simple to know. They also need a DOS or PowerShell terminal, without any special permission.
With this terminal open, they only need to execute the shutdown / s / t command. Of course, they must change the value by the value they want. The / s parameter defines that it is for disconnecting and / t indicates that you must respect the time.
The shutdown command is what they need
To choose the time when the system will shut down, you just need to calculate the number of seconds left. The shutdown command accepts that this value is defined in detail for the second and, therefore, gives the user great freedom.
Whenever the set time is less than or equal to 10 minutes, a message will be displayed warning that Windows will soon be shut down. If higher, Windows 10 will only show a simple alert on the taskbar.
What if users regret it?
Of course, they can at any time regret the step taken and give a command to interrupt the shutdown of Windows 10. This is simple and has only the / a parameter as an associated value for this interruption step.
In the same DOS or PowerShell window, you only have to execute the shutdown / a command. Once again Windows 10 will give a message to alert the user, this time on the taskbar.
The shutdown command has many options that can to explore and that are interesting. We leave the example of / h that will hibernate the computer instead of turning it off. Explore these options and control Windows 10 more directly.
