Quickly Set Shutdown Timer in Windows 10


In this method, we will tell you how you can shut down Windows 10 with the shutdown timer using the Run Prompt. For doing this, you need to perform the following steps:

Step 1: Open the Run window on your computer. For this, type ‘run’ in the search section of the taskbar and click on the app from the search results.

Step 2: Now, in the Run window, type in the following command:

shutdown -s -t TimeInSeconds

Here, replace the TimeInSeconds with the time you want your computer to shut down. Make sure to enter the time in seconds.

In this example, we are setting the computer to shut down after 5 minutes, which converts to 300 seconds. After entering the command, click the “Ok” button.

After that, Windows 10 will prompt you with the message “You are about to be signed out” and when the timer expires, the device will automatically shut down.
