Question about 'Restart Windows without Restarting your Computer'

I have a question about Restart 
Windows without Restarting your Computer:

Hello all, This restarting batch file works pretty well on my computer, the only problem is that I can't use hotkeys with.


On the other hand, I am using successfully a simple shortcut with this code at the place for Target : C:\WINDOWS\RUNDLL.EXE user.exe,exitwindows This one is accepting hotkeys : personally, I press Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Q and, if all open documents are saved, my computer is immediately off. My question is : would it be possible to modify that code in order to get restart Windows instead of shutdown ? I've tried to replace the end : "exitwindows" by "restartwindows" but it doesn't work. Thanks a lot in advance

Thank you ! That's fine but it is rather a reboot shortcut. There is no any other 
one for RESTART Windows only ?

Just tried this and it works:

For the Windows "Restart!" (warm reboot) shortcut (all Windows 95/98 releases):
C:\WINDOWS\RUNDLL.EXE C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\USER.EXE,ExitWindowsExec
Note that you canNOT use RUNDLL32.EXE for this last command with Win98/98 SE because 
the GUI does NOT support this 32-bit DLL API redirect from the command line, and 
after all USER.EXE is a "plain" 16-bit executable. :(


For the Windows complete (cold) "Reboot!" shortcut (Windows 98/98 SE only):
C:\WINDOWS\RUNDLL32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SHELL32.DLL,SHExitWindowsEx 2

Jim-What is the difference between the (warm) and (cold) reboot?

It won't work with RUNDLL32.EXE because you're making an API call from a file that is only there for backwards compatibility with 16-bit Windows 3.x files.

==================================
So, this is a summary of shortcuts working on my computer (Win 98 SE) :

"Restart" shortcut (warm reboot - Windows restart only) :
C:\WINDOWS\RUNDLL.EXE user.exe,exitwindowsExec

"Reboot" shortcut (cold reboot - restart complete) :
C:\WINDOWS\RUNDLL32.EXE shell32,SHExitWindowsEx 2

"Shutdown" shortcut :
C:\WINDOWS\RUNDLL.EXE user.exe,exitwindows

Thanks for help :)))

To use the same shortcut to restart windows, all you have to do is add something to the shortcut that you had to shut down the computer: c:\windows\rundll.exe user.exe,exitwindowsexec Give it a try. It works like a charm.

Make a batch file (text file with .bat extention) with the following command in it: exit Now right click on the file's icon and go to Properties > Program tab > Advanced button. Uncheck the first 2 items, check the third, and uncheck the fourth. Leave the rest as is. What this will do is exit to dos mode, and as you all know typing "exit" from dos will bring you back to windows, and thats what the batch file does. (Note: This is primarily for Windows 98)
