Restart Windows from the command line
Category : How-to
Sometimes you may want to restart windows without clicking the Start menu. In some cases, such as in a remote desktop session, the option to restart Windows is missing completely from the Start menu.
You can restart Windows XP/ Windows Server 2003 or newer, using the Windows command line or a shortcut.
shutdown -r -t 10
-r: is the argument to request a restart, rather than a complete shutdown.
-t n: is used to specify a delay, before the restart command will take effect. The default is 60 seconds. ‘n’ represents the time in seconds.
To name a few just a few, you can run this command from the Run dialogue, from a CMD, or from a shorcut.
