I am told that it is possible to put a single click shut down icon on the Window 8 start screen but I have not found out how to do it. Any suggestions? Peter

Thanks for link, I followed advise however when I press shutdown icon which I have created the black command windows pops up briefly but the pc does not shut down. The appearance of the command window is so brief that I cannot read words. Any thoughts on what I have done wrong? Peter

In the shortcut box did you leave spaces between shutdown and /s and between /s and /t and between /t and 0? also did you make sure that you used 0 (zero) and not O or o?
