Windows 7: How to always force shutdown....

24 Mar 2014   #11

64-bit Windows 10 Pro

Hello Grep, and welcome to Seven Forums.

A forced shutdown is just that. It forces Windows to shut down instantly.

The only problem with always using a forced shutdown is if something just happens to be currently in the progress of being saved when you do a forced shutdown, it will be lost.

If you wait for anything running to finish and close everything before doing a forced shutdown, then it will minimize the risk of having an issue.

When I attempt to shut down the system while a program(s) is(are) running, I get a message and have to click "Force shutdown" button to complete the shut down process. Is there a way to suppress or bypass this extra step?
