Restart is always recommended especially when you create any changes on your computer system.

This is for the reason that the changes you made won't make any effects unless after restarting your PC.

Shutting down or rebooting in Linux can be turned off from the GUI interface, but I'm afraid that the changes will not take effect even if you enable this feature.

Mandatory system restart is required if some changes are made in the system, for example after installing an application.

This is necessary for the changes to the system to take effect.

But if you have some very critical tasks that are currently loaded and you can’t have your system be restarted, there is an easy way to avoid the mandatory rebooting of the computer.

Here is how it is done using Windows XP. If you have other versions of Windows or you are using a different operating system, just try adapting the procedure.

  1. Launch Windows Task Manager by pressing CTRL + SHIFT + ESC. The other way of opening the task manager is by pressing CTRL + ALT + DEL.
  2. Click Processes tab.
  3. Select explorer.exe then hit End Process.
  4. Click Yes to confirm the task.
  5. Click File then select New Task (Run).
  6. Type explorer then press Enter or click OK.

That’s it you’ve already restarted Windows Explorer.

It’s as if you’ve already rebooted the computer.
