    I used to have a short cut for 98 that when clicked on would immediately shut down the PC. What is the exact path for this in XP? If no direct link, then how can I make a XP shut down with out having to go through the start menu?

    My wife won't remember Alt-F4. What can be created through a short cut icon to shut down XP?

    Also, if you have a power button on your keyboard (one that says "Power" not one that turns the keyboard off :)) you can set it to shutdown or restart etc the computer in the power options from control panel
