We have seen that there are several ways to Shutdown or Restart Windows, here is another way you can shut down Windows, with a click! You may be aware of our small 147 KB portable freeware tool HotShut which lets you shutdown, restart, hibernate, lock or log off your Windows computer instantly from your taskbar notification area in a click.
Shutdown PC in a Single Click, using NPower Tray
While browsing the web, I happened to come across another similar tool by the name – NPower Tray. NpowerTray is another tool that creates a system tray icon to manage standard power options like SHUTDOWN, RESTART, SLEEP, and HIBERNATE in a single step. Yes, you have read it right, single step!
When you double-click on its system-tray icon, Windows will get shutdown automatically without displaying any confirmation prompt. Cool, isn’t it?
Also, right-clicking the icon will bring up all the standard power options like:
- Sleep, Lock
- Log Off
- Force Shutdown
- Force Reboot
- Force Hibernate
- Force Sleep
- Force Log Off.
To start NPowerTray with the System, select ‘About’ from the right-click menus and then check the ‘Start with Windows Desktop’ option.
The main highlight of the application is that, like HotShut, it does not require installation of any kind. Just extract its content to any folder and start using it right away.
Do note that Npower Tray requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 Client Profile which is included in Windows by default.
You can download Npower Tray from here.
