Do you want to create a Shutdown Timer for Windows 10? then this article is for you

This article outlines four techniques to program your PC to shut down automatically at a particular time. We also provide details on how to halt a planned shutdown.

 

HOW TO SCHEDULE COMPUTER SHUTDOWN WITH COMMAND PROMPT

Follow these steps to use the command prompt for a one-time shutdown.

  1. In the Windows Search Box, type CMD.

  2. Select Enter.

  3. In the Command Prompt window, type shutdown -s -t and the number of seconds you want.

    Note:  the CMD and Run command processes use seconds to measure time, not minutes. For example, if you want to shut down in 10 minutes, use 600 seconds. If you want your computer to shut off in 10 hours, use 36,000. The choice is always yours; remember to add it in seconds instead of minutes.

  4. Select Enter.

  5. A window will pop up, warning you Windows will shut down in the amount of time you requested.

That’s it. Your computer will now automatically shut down at the time you specified. You’ll receive a warning a few minutes before shutdown to remind you then, too.

Note: Do longer want your computer to shut down at a specific time? Cancel the request by opening the Command Prompt and typing shutdown -a. Select Enter.

HOW TO USE RUN COMMAND TO SET UP AUTOMATIC SHUTDOWN

Follow these steps to use the command prompt for a one-time shutdown.

  1. In the Windows search box, type RUN.

    Note: You can also press the Windows button + R at the same time instead.

  2. Select Enter.

  3. In the Run dialog box, type shutdown -s -t and the number of seconds you need.

  4. Select OK.

  5. A window will pop up showing you that it received your request, and your computer will log off at the time you requested.

    HOW TO SET UP REGULAR SHUTDOWN WITH TASK SCHEDULER

    2. Select Enter.

    3. In the Task Scheduler, go to Actions and choose to Create Basic Task.

    4. In the Name and Description boxes, enter a name and description of your task.

    5. Select Next.

    6. In the Create Basic Task Wizard window, select a trigger.

    7. Select Next.

    8. Enter the dates and times as needed using the prompts from the Wizard.

    9. Select Next.

    10. In the Action window, select Start a program.

    11. Select Next.

    12. In the Start, a Program window, use the Browse button to select the shutdown program on your computer. It might say shutdown.exe or some other form of the shutdown, depending on your computer.

    13. After you have selected the shutdown file, select Open.

    14. In the Start a Program window, select Next.

    15. In the Summary window, select Finish.
