Icon to turn computer off.

Post by Hoosier »

I have an icon on my desktop linked to a script that will turn off the computer.
But it's not part of Rocket Dock.
Is there some way I can link a Rocket Dock icon to this script, or anything really, that will turn off the computer?
Thanks..this forum is always so helpful.

I can recommend an application that can exe the bat file extension.
Bat To Exe Converter
or
If you send me the icon you want, I can create an executable file for you :thumbup:
or
I don't know about Rocketdock. If you can change the icon through the application, I can share normal files
code content "shutdown.exe" -s -t 00
Shutdown.rar

If your script is in some powersell or commandline file then you can use some mouse action to run it, for example LeftMouseUpAction=["C:\your script.bat"]

You can alao use RunCommand plugin to run such scripts.

Thank you for the replys, both of which I've tried with no luck.
I think my ignorance of the correct termonolgy for what I'm using may have mislead you.
This is the line that I am using with the decktop icon....

%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe /s /t 0

This is inserted into the "target" box located in the icons properties.

When I insert this line into the "target" box for a RocketDock icon and then activate the icon I get the following error message.

"Windows connot find :C/WINDOWS\System32\shutdown.exe/s/t 0."

I downloaded and tried the app for you.
You don't need any scripts.
Just follow the steps below.


Right Click => Add Item => Blank Icon => Right Click (Created Icon) => Icon Settings...
Target=C:\Windowns\System32\shutdown.exe
Arguments=-s -t 00
