    guys, if you're having problems, just create shortcuts to shutdown and restart. then pin the shortcuts to the start screen. if you want to use these graphics, assign then to your shortcut.

    for your target in your shutdown shortcut: C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /s /t 0

    for your target in your restart shortcut: C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe -r -t 00 -f

    You should make a Windows 8 App that does this, I'm sure there are many that would be interested in using the tool. It's a good time now, Microsoft is giving away developer accounts for $8 instead of the $99 for 8 days. Well, 3 more days since they started 5 days ago at BUILD.

    Looking in to that deal $8 is pretty good

    Great start screen icons!

    Looking at first post:
    A batch file is an extra step. The same procedure works better directly if you make shortcuts.


    I was late:

    Just to say that with batch files you see a black command prompt window for a while but with shortcuts is flawless.
    Both methods work, so for those that like the batches, keep them.
