How to restart your computer remotely

If you work from home using Remote Desktop and need to restart your computer you'll find that the "Restart" option is gone from the Start menu. In order to remotely restart your computer you'll need to follow these steps:

  1. Click Start
  2. Click Run...
  3. Type "cmd"
  4. A black box should appear with white text; now type "shutdown -f -r -t 01" and hit enter

Note: Once you issue this command you will be immediately disconnected from your remote connection. Wait 2-5 minutes for the computer to restart before trying to reconnect.
