Windows 7: Super Fast Shutdown icon on TaskBar

Windows 7 Pro x32
Super Fast Shutdown icon on TaskBar

I'm posting this because I have been greatly helped by TwoCables with a Super fast hover time setting on my 'Start\All programs' select (see earlier thread). So in thanks to TC and in case others are interested in getting everything as fast as possible here it is...

Super Fast Shutdown Icon:

Shut Down Computer Shortcut - Create

1 - Create Shortcut ... Right Click on Desktop...\New\Shortcut.
2 - Create Target ... Copy "shutdown.exe -s -t 01" without quotes into Location.
3 - Create Name ... Push next and edit name to "Shutdown" without quotes.
4 - Push finish
5 - Change Icon ... Right click... Change Icon, select, OK. (I used the red icon as illustrated)
6 - Shift Icon ... Drag to Task bar.

If you like this you can do exactly the same thing for Restart using an "r" instead of the "s". (icon illustrated with a green box)
