Windows operating systems are far from being perfect (yes, even with Services Packs). That’s why you might wish to reboot Microsoft Windows 7 in order to “quickly” solve some issue affecting it. There are a lot of reasons why you might wish to perform such an “extreme action”. Your computer got stuck all of a sudden, or the system went into a reboot loop for example. Other times instead, even if you didn’t experienced any issue, a reboot might increase your computer performance. In fact, if you don’t turn off Windows 7, preferring to leave it on for days, you have to know that its cache will get clogged with temporary files which are kind of leftovers your computer produces when you open a new document or a software etc. Most important, restarting you computer will immediately free RAM thus making your machine faster and more responsive! Whatever the reason, here is the simple trick to reboot and restart your Windows 7 system.
- Click Start.
- On the right side of the Search field, click the Turn Off button and from the drop down menu select Restart. Thsi will turn off your computer and it will turn it on, automatically.
- If you want to reboot the system at a certain time, follow this other procedure.
- Click Start.
- In the Search field, type cmd and do not press Enter.
- Right click the icon instead and from the menu select, Run it as Administrator.
- In the DOS prompt, type SHUTDOWN.EXE -r -t 30 This will reboot your computer in 30 seconds.
