    Force "Shutdown Anyway"


    EVERY time I go to shutdown Windows 8 it always prompts me with a "some of these applications blah blah blah" and gives me the options to "shutdown anyway" or "cancel". This literally happens everytime I shutdown and it is very anyway. Is there a way to force the option or get rid of windows prompting it? I'm getting tired of coming home from work with my computer still on.

    Hello Helltech,

    You might see if using the forced shut down shortcuts in either tutorial below may be able to help.

    or

    Power - Add Cascading Desktop Context Menu in Windows 8

    Hope this helps,

    Out of curiosity, what applications or processes are doing this?
