Hello Rocstart,

Windows 7 doesn't have one with a time and date on it. You might take a look at this to see if it may be closer for you though.

Hi Shaun

If I place the shortcut on my desktop it works fine with the hidden cmd window but when i add it to my object dock the cmd window re appears any ideas

Thanks Danny


Edit- Its ok got it now when you add the shortcut to an object dock it changes the open minimised/maximised/normal settings so need to change them again

Thanks

Hello Danny,

See if right clicking on it, then doing step 8 in OPTION TWO will get rid of the command window flash.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Brilliant, just what I needed. Very useful for shutting down when I am remoting on with RDP which doesn't let me shut down on Windows 7/8 like it does with Windows Servers...
