Rebooting through remote desktop


Problem:
While remoting through Windows Remote Desktop Connection, shutdown options are not available.

Solution:
There are a few ways of enabling shutdown and restart. I have created a simple batch script to easily accomplish this. All we need is to save this code in a .bat file and the options are presented for us.


echo off
cls
echo SELECT OPTION
ECHO 1-RESTART COMPUTER
ECHO 2-SHUTDOWN COMPUTER
ECHO 3-ABORT PREVIOUS SEQUENCE
SET /P Choice="--> "
IF /I '%Choice%'=='1' GOTO restart
IF /I '%Choice%'=='2' GOTO shutdown
IF /I '%Choice%'=='3' GOTO abort
EXIT

:restart
cls
echo RESTARTING THIS COMPUTER...
shutdown /r
echo.
pause
exit

:shutdown
cls
echo SHUTTING DOWN THIS COMPUTER...
shutdown /s
echo.
pause
exit

:abort
cls
echo ABORTING PREVIOUS SEQUENCE...
shutdown /a
echo.
pause
exit
