How to create Shutdown and Restart Buttons on Desktop

Many u think to have the shutdown and restart buttons on our desktop.
The traditional way includes going to start button and then choosing the Turn Off Computer button and again choosing between switch user, turn off and restart.
It does takes a few seconds more(some times boring ). Well there is a solution for it u can create a Shutdown Button& restart on the desktop.
To create a shutdown and restart button on Desktop we have to create a shortcut. To do this first Right Click on the Desktop and then click New Button.
Then scroll down to Shortcut. On clicking it a new Window appears with a blank space saying "Type the location of items".
In this space write "shutdown.exe -s -t 5" or "%windir%\system32\shutdown.exe -s -t 5" Now the -s stands for shutdown and -t denotes the time in seconds to wait before windows shutdown. Then click Next and give a name as shutdown and click Finish.
To apply icons to it simply Right click it and Properties and then Change Icons. For Restart simply change -s with -r like this way "%windir%\system32\shutdown.exe -r -t 10" or "shutdown.exe -r -t 10".
