    Difference between shutdown /p and shutdown /s ?


    Hello,

    I followed Brink's tutorial here: Shut Down Computer in Windows 10
    And I saw that there are 2 ways to fully shutdown Windows through cmd: /s and /p.
    What is the difference between these 2, if both of them are said to perform a full shutdown?

    Thanks

    :)

  2. Windows 10 shuts down with no warning

    Since install of 10 I have had my laptop shutdown with no warning. I was running different programs during each shutdown. It was on several random days between the problems. Ideas?

    Power Off options in Windows 10

    What is the difference between "Win X Menu Shutdown(Start Menu right click)" to "Shutdown from Start Menu(Start Menu -> Power -> Shutdown". Why Microsoft has chosen to keep two ways of same functionality as both will use same number of Clicks to perform
    any operation.

    Difference between shutdown /p and shutdown /s ?

    hello, the /p will stop and tell you have programs running ,and to close them before shutting down . /s will just shutdown with no warning messages if apps are running or if you a text file or such open that you might be working on ..that's the way I read it anyway

  3. Open Shell's shutdown procedure is not the same as Window 10's shutdown

    in Windows 10 Ask Insider
    Open Shell's shutdown procedure is not the same as Window 10's shutdown: I use Open Shell (the Windows 7-like start menu replacement). The shutdown button there is different from the default Windows 10 shutdown. First off, it doesn't ask for confirmation to shutdown. More importantly, once you shutdown and start the computer again, programs do not...
