The non-server versions in Windows, in the shutdown menu, in the RDP session, have no options to shutdown and restart the computer. This can be done in the following ways:
- Method 1: Make the desktop active, press Alt + F4
- Method 2: Run on the command line
shutdown -s -f -t 0
shutdown -r -f -t 0
The command line method is more reliable because it uses the -f switch to force all processes to terminate.
The RDP session ends before the system displays information about the processes that prevent it from shutting down, so in the first option (and in the case of the server version), you will not know about a failed reboot.
