How to reboot Windows 7 remotely from RDP Login Screen?

Guys,

If I RDP to a system older than Windows 7 OS, the CTRL-ALT-END works on the RDP log in screen to bring up the Windows Security window to reboot. But it doesn't work for Windows 7 system!!!!!

I have a Windows 7 Ultimate system that I need to restart remotely from the RDP login screen but I just can't.

I tried everything I found online, shutdown commands, ctrl-alt-end and everything else I could find, nothing helps.

Any ideas???

Welcome to Seven Forums!

Normally you can do a remote shutdown by opening a command line and using the shutdown command. But you say that doesn't work. When you open a command prompt what shutdown syntax are you using and what is the response?

Open and elevated Command Prompt and type:

shutdown -r -f -t 0

That will reboot the machine.

CTRL + ALT + END in the RDP screen gives a list of options.
But, at the botton right corner of the screen there will be a shutdown icon.
That gives two options (Shutdown, Restart).
That works fine for me.
