Hi guys.

I'm trying to shutdown a remote desktop in my network using the command line. How do I shutdown cmd gui remotely and is this possible? The main and remote desktop both have Windows XP 64 bit. Any suggestions would be of great help.

Hi,

So your question is how to shut down another / network PC using the command prompt. Just follow these steps to do that, first go to Start, type “run” then type “cmd” after that type “shutdown –m \computer name” or type “shutdown -i” note: this process only works in an admin type network. Hope this works for you.

Hi Fernando,

Shutting down a remote desktop using the cmd is very easy. Here's how you do it.

1. GOTO Start > Run then type cmd.

Run then type cmd

2. Type the following commands for its corresponding functions.

shutdown -f        Shutdown
shutdown -r -f    Reboot
shutdown -i -f    GUI Change
shutdown -l -f    Logout

There's a lot of other ways to shutdown your remote desktop you can use ALT+F4 to view the GUI and Task Manager. Hope this helps.
