For creating any of the shortcuts on desktop
  • Right click on desktop and then select New > Shortcut

  • Shutdown command is the basic command here and using this single command (Shut down) we can create Shutdown, Restart and Log Off shortcuts on desktop and Metro Wall. Shutdown.exe is available in System32 directly so you need to put location in shortcut window. The commands are given below for you.
     Shutdown :C:Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /s /t 0
    Restart:C:Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /r /t 0
    Log Off:C:Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /l
  • Use the three commands above to make shortcuts of Shutdown, Restart and Log Off easily.

  • Once you finish the above process . Change the Icon of the shorcut .

  • After creating all three shortcuts move them on to
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
    When you copy something on this, directly it will automatically updated and would appear on Windows 8 Metro Wall.

What do the arguments " /s /t 0" in shutdown.exe mean?

More important {insert embarrassed newb icon}, where do I find this sort of basic info? I'm fumbling in Windows 10, in an area where Contana, the fancy help thingie they are promoting, does not work yet.

a.) Where is simple written information?
b.) Where are tutorials here at techtools?
c.) Does anybody know a work-around to get Contana working?
