Reboot over RDP

Normally when you log into a Windows PC via RDP, Windows disables the Restart and Shutdown commands from the Start menu.  This is a pain, especially if you want to force a reboot.

This post has the instructions on how to reboot a PC over RDP.  Here is the command that I use:

 shutdown /r /f /m \\


  1. ctrl + Alt = End

    press shutdown

    it will give you the option to shutdown, reboot, or log off

  2. This shutdown commend seemed to cause my profile to become corrupted. Avoid.
