How to create Shutdown and Restart Buttons on Desktop

Many u think to have the shutdown and restart buttons on our desktop. The traditional
way includes going to start button and then choosing the Turn Off Computer button and
again choosing between switch user, turn off and restart. It does takes a few seconds
more(some times boring ). Well there is a solution for it
u can create a Shutdown Button& restart on the desktop.
To create a shutdown and restart button on Desktop we have to create a shortcut. To
do this first
Right Click on the Desktop and then click New Button. Then scroll down to Shortcut.
On clicking it a new Window appears with a blank space saying "Type the location of
items". In this space write "shutdown.exe -s -t 5" or
"%windir%\system32\shutdown.exe -s -t 5"
Now the -s stands for shutdown and -t denotes the time in seconds to wait before
windows shutdown. Then click Next and give a name as shutdown and click Finish. To
apply icons to it simply Right click it and Properties and then Change Icons. For
Restart simply change -s with -r like this way "%windir%\system32\shutdown.exe -r -t
10" or "shutdown.exe -r -t 10".

Change the text on Start button in XP..

Step 1 -
Modify Explorer.exe FileIn order to make the changes, the file
explorer.exe located at C:\Windows needs to be edited. Since
explorer.exe is a binary file it requires a special editor. For purposes
of this article we have used Resource Hacker. Resource Hacker is a
freeware utility to view, modify, rename, add, delete and extract
resources in 32bit Windows executables and resource files (*.res). It
incorporates an internal resource script compiler and decompiler
and works on Mcft Windows 95/98/ME, Windows NT, Windows
2000 and Windows XP operating systems.

get this from h**p://

The first step is to make a backup copy of the file explorer.exe
located at C:\Windows\explorer. Place it in a folder somewhere on
your hard drive where it will be safe. Start Resource Hacker and
open explorer.exe located at C:\Windows\explorer.exe.

The category we are going to be using is "String Table". Expand it
by clicking the plus sign then navigate down to and expand string 37
followed by highlighting 1033. If you are using the Classic Layout
rather than the XP Layout, use number 38. The right hand pane will
display the stringtable. We’re going to modify item 578, currently
showing the word “start” just as it displays on the current Start

There is no magic here. Just double click on the word “start” so that
it’s highlighted, making sure the quotation marks are not part of the
highlight. They need to remain in place, surrounding the new text
that you’ll type. Go ahead and type your new entry. In my case we
used Click Me!

You’ll notice that after the new text string has been entered the
Compile Script button that was grayed out is now active. we won’t
get into what’s involved in compiling a script, but suffice it to say it’s
going to make this exercise worthwhile. Click Compile Script and
then save the altered file using the Save As command on the File
Menu. Do not use the Save command – Make sure to use the Save
As command and choose a name for the file. Save the newly
named file to C:\Windows.

Step 2 – Modify the Registry
!!!make a backup of your registry before making changes!!!

Now that the modified explorer.exe has been created it’s necessary
to modify the registry so the file will be recognized when the user
logs on to the system. If you don’t know how to access the registry
I’m not sure this article is for you, but just in case it’s a temporary
memory lapse, go to Start (soon to be something else) Run and
type regedit in the Open field. Navigate to:

CurrentVersion\ Winlogon

In the right pane, double click the "Shell" entry to open the Edit
String dialog box. In Value data: line, enter the name that was used
to save the modified explorer.exe file. Click OK.

Close Registry Editor and either log off the system and log back in,
or reboot the entire system if that’s your preference. If all went as
planned you should see your new Start button with the revised text.

Making A file of the size you want..

                         How to make a file of the size you want ?
       Let us assume you want to make a file of size 10000kbConvert it to bytes ->
                    10000*1024 which comes out to be 10240000 bytes
                        Open calculator (win key+r -> type in calc )
                          Choose view mode to be Scientific one
             Type in 10240000 and convert it to hex it comes out to be 9C4000
                 Convert this value to 8 digits by padding zeroes to its left
                          -> so finally it comes out be 009C4000
                   Open Command Prompt (win key + r -> type in cmd )

     check the file you just made by dir command ->dir filename.datUsing the same
technique you can make files as big as you wantHere is an image to show how exactly
