If it does help thank Brink and this great tutorials Shut Down Windows Shortcut
The thing that wasn't clear to me in that tutorial is whether that method just closes windows, or closes Windows? When using it, does one remain at desktop?
The only purpose that I can see for something like this, is that it is recommended to close all other programs, when installing another. Usually, I'm too lazy to really do that, and only close the ones that are visibly open, like those displaying a taskbar icon, not those running in the System tray.
In the past, I had used Outertech's Batchrun to creat a shortcut that would do this, but it requires adding each program manually, and then updating it as required when the situation changes.
