You already know about shortcuts and how useful they are. Shortcuts help us launch files/folders and applications rapidly from the desktop. Today, I am going to tell you how you can create a Restart shortcut button on the taskbar and desktop.

1. Right click on the desktop and move to New then select Shortcut.

2. A window opens up for you to give the path where you need to enter “shutdown /r /t 0”. After entering this command, click on Next then Finish. A new shortcut will be created on the desktop named “shutdown.exe”.

3. Now change its icon to give it a better look and make it more recognizable. Right click on shutdown.exe and select Properties then click on the Change Icon button and select any icon of your choice.
