it is very bad to turn off a windows computer with doing a shut down. It may cusses different type of problem. You should not press the power button or restart the computer while Windows is still running unless there is an issue with the computer. Microsoft has included the shut down feature because it enables a computer to go through all the necessary steps that are required before turning off the computer.

If the computer is not shut down properly Microsoft Windows will check the computer for any problems. If you turning off the computer without performing the shut down feature it is very likely that you will eventually encounter data corruption. Thank you.

It is not at all advisable to turn your computer off without going through a proper shut down process. By turn off, i understand you mean to say you're just going to unplug the computer from the wall or just push the power button until the computer is turned off.

This will cause the entire operating system to be terminated prematurely without properly exiting and stopping processes. This can cause boot up problems or serious file corruption on your system. There's actually a Sleep and a Hibernate option in Windows that you can make use of.

This allows you to stop the computer from doing anything and it's faster than a shut down. When you need to get the computer back up again, it also takes less time compared to a regular boot up. You might want to check those options instead.
