    Default Fast Server shut down

    Hi all,
    I have a music PC running Server 2019 and I'd like to just press the power button to shut it down, not have to go to start menu.

    Is this possible? There will only be one program running at this time.

    Thanks

    Can'y you just use the power button on the PC....also some keyboards do have a power button on them. (more laptops), of if you have a specific manufactured keyboard with keyboard software you could assign a key to poweroff (or to a shortcut to a command/batch file with a shutdown command)

    Several ways: some the same as already posted.

    Set the Power Button in the power options to shut down.

    Some Keyboards have a Power Button - just need to set that to shut down not sleep.

    Create a Shortcut on the desktop in the location box type in shutdown /s /t 0 (that's a zero at the end, and you can give it a Icon in it if you want) Double click it - shuts down

    Same as above but map the shortcut to a key combo on the keyboard then all you do is hit that combo and it shuts down.

    Another already inbuilt way -- Press Win + X Then Press U twice Will shutdown.

    Thanks guys

    I don't use a keyboard... I just control the PC from my listening spot with the mouse. When I'm finished listening I'd love to just hit the power button on my way out.

    "Set the Power Button in the power options to shut down." Some more guidance on this option please.

    Thanks

    If you control it with a mouse, then a shortcut on the desktop (add it to task bar if you really want to) will be the quickest way.

    Else, in control panel look for power options, buried in there somewhere is a "what to do when the power button is pressed", it defaults to sleep I think, you should be able ot set shutdown.
