Windows 8 Shutdown Problem [Solved]

Now we have Come up with Windows 8 Shoutdown Problem .Before we have discussed some of the problems about Windows 8 Consumer Preview edition like Wind0ws 8 Audio problem and Windows 8 Internet problem , here we come again with one more such problem faced by many users i.e a problem with Shutting down their computers.So in my last post i have showed you how to overcome the internet problem in Windows 8 and also had mentioned at the end about the problems we get after changing the settings according to the post. Here i write a solution to one of the problem for which our Internet problem solution was one of the reason.

In the last post, we actually changed the settings for the system not to turn off the hardware to save power, now this may even create one more problem like, it won’t turn off even when the PC is Shutting down and lets the pc to be in ON mode and just waste power and resources. So we have to tweak a bit.
So this Shutdown problem can be solved by the following steps:
Create a new shortcut by right clicking on the desktop and selecting the option as shown in the figure below.
Now type the following command in the box as in the screenshot below:
shutdown -s -f -t 00
Now in order to make it look like any other app, change the icon of it, by right clicking on the shortcut and selecting as shown in the figure,
Now select your own icon and right click on the shortcut and select Pin to Start
And at last it would look like this on the Start menu
And thats it, now when ever you want to shutdown your PC, just go to START and click on this icon which would make your Computer Shutdown properly without any problems.
