I often work with multiple computer system. This machines are different machines. When I login using remote desktop to different machine, I often want to restart or shutdown the computer. Remote desktop does not let me shutdown computer when I have remote system as Windows 7. At this time, I walk myself to the physical computer and restart the machine. This is not convenient if I am doing it often.
I recently searched for command prompt solution for the same and I learned it today.
If you are going to say this is so 90s. Well, I am late by 20 years :)

Restart the Computer using Command Prompt
Well this is very simple but I am glad that I know it.
