run task scheduler „Aufgabenplanung“

%windir%\system32\taskschd.msc /s

  • File/Datei -> New/Neu -> Basic Task/Einfache Aufgabe
  • select or copy paste: %SystemRoot%\System32\shutdown.exe

  • one has to scroll the list and search for the new task then double click

  • r-click on the task and select -> run to give it a test run/rechts-click auf den neuen Task und -> ausführen, um einen Testlauf zu starten

  • excellent! now all users have 1min to close all programs/tasks or face dataloss! 🙂
