Windows 7: re: extending time that win close box stays on screen

re: extending time that win close box stays on screen

This is on my Dell Inspiron 15-3541 laptop.

In the Win7 box bellow that comes up win Win7 is shutting down. I am looking for 2 things.

1st. How do I make that box come up when Windows isn't waiting for a prog to shutdown?
It is a simple change in the Win reg file. I can't find the hard copy of the instructions and
I lost that file on the last D: HDD crash. It is a dumb mistake on my part. I ignored the
Windows warring box's saying "save all files and re-format the D: HDD" until it was to late.
I was only able to recover about 1/3rd of what was on the (half full) 500gb HDD that I already
saved to CD's and DVD's.

2nd. How do I extend the time that the box stays up.

My reason for this is, sometimes, not very much, when I am shutting down the laptop to, mostly, go to bed. I suddenly I remember something that needs to be done. I can hit the cancle box and override the shutdown rather then wait for the laptop to shutdown and then re-start/boot up the laptop again.


Waiting for background programs to close.
-----------------------------------------------------



-----------------------------------------------------
To close the program that is preventing Windows from
shutting down,click Cancle, and then close the program.

re: extending time that win close box stays on screen

Snick, there is an entry in the Windows Registry file that covers this. I have changed the values before and got what I needed. Like I said, I lost the hard copy, may not relay be true. The hard copy maybe stored in a file box and buried somewhere in my storage unit. But I know it can be done. And I have learned my lesion the hard way, DON"T mess with the Windows Registry file unless you have precise instructions.

Boy I have had to learn this lesson "Backup your system regularly, it's not a question of IF, it's a question of WHEN you will need it" a few times in the School of Hard Knocks!!!
