    Post Create A Logoff Shortcut On Your Desktop In Vista, Plus Learn How To Create Shortcut

    This tip is also a way of learning how to create shortcuts. Not only for logoff shortcut. It will be easier if you know the path of the program you are creating shortcut of.

    Creating a shortcut to logoff on your desktop is another fast way to logoff on your windows account.

    For example: If you were in a middle of doing something personal or private and someone just stepped in unexpectedly, Or you were in a hurry and needed to logoff fast. The logoff shortcut could be useful to you at this kind of situation, But it might not be the fastest way to logoff though!

    Note that you can as well press the windows logo key + D to minimize all open windows or press the windows logo key + L to lock the screen or press CTRL + ALT + DEL and chose what you want to do from the options.

    Now lets follow this simple steps to create a logoff shortcut on the desktop. Let's assume that your windows local disk drive is (C).

    First method: Go to Computer>>>Local Disk (C)>>>windows>>>System32 or just use this link "C:\Windows\System32" and then look for a .exe file named "logoff". Right click on it and select "Create Shortcut"


    You will now see the following message


    Click yes...You will now see a logoff shortcut on your desktop.

    Second method: Right click empty place on desktop and select New>>>shortcut click browse to look for the "logoff" file as described above or just paste this link C:\Windows\System32\logoff.exe and click next to continue.



    Choose a name for the shortcut or leave it as it is and click finish, You will now see the shortcut on your desktop.



    You have also learnt how to create a shortcut.....didn't you?



    That's it!..... wait a minute, wouldn't it be nice to change the shortcut icon with a nicer one like the one below?

    Your question not well understood.....

    You can also create a Shutdown shortcut just as the was logoff shortcut was created above....

    Or you can Set Start Menu Power Button To Shut Down as it is not set to shutdown by default.---- I have it posted here http://www.putersandnet.com/windowsv...wer_button.htm

    Thanks for your comment

    Cool !

    While on the topic- you can create A SUSPEND shortcut thus:

    In the Create Shortcut wizards location text box appears, type: rundll32.exe PowrProf.dll, SetSuspendState
