View Full Version : Shortcut key command...

12 December 2003, 09:29 AM
hi pal,

I'm trying to create shortcut in windows, and if possible understand what the command is all about.

For example: i can create a shutdown shortcut with 'SHUTDOWN -s -t 01'. But i dun understand what is the -s -t means!

I get the code from a website which i couldn't remember the site name. I apologise for that...

But where can i look for reference that tells me more about all the short code.

Thank you

google is your best shot for that but those switches I think, from the letters, might mean something like:

s: suppress all messages
t: eh, I don't know this one.

/? is your dos-friend :)

prompt> shutdown /?

Usage: shutdown [-i | -l | -s | -r | -a] [-f] [-m \\computername] [-t xx] [-c "c
omment"] [-d up:xx:yy]

No args Display this message (same as -?)
-i Display GUI interface, must be the first option
-l Log off (cannot be used with -m option)
-s Shutdown the computer
-r Shutdown and restart the computer
-a Abort a system shutdown
-m \\computername Remote computer to shutdown/restart/abort
-t xx Set timeout for shutdown to xx seconds
-c "comment" Shutdown comment (maximum of 127 characters)
-f Forces running applications to close without warning
-d [u][p]:xx:yy The reason code for the shutdown
u is the user code
p is a planned shutdown code
xx is the major reason code (positive integer less than 256)
yy is the minor reason code (positive integer less than 65536)
