Hello, friends,Most of The users shutdown their computers using the power option given in the Start menu.
Some of the users use the physical power button.Very few peoples actually use the command prompt to shutdown a computer.

A reason for this is that most of us don't know that the command prompt can be used to not only for the shutdown, restart of our computer instantly but also to shutdown a remote computer.
