Windows 10 designed for desktop and mobile devices. Windows 10 UI is different between the desktop and tablet, there are several functional changes intended to make working with a tablet easier. One of the differences is that the tablet with Windows 10, has a neat slide with mute function. With a gesture by swiping across from the top down, you initiate the system shutdown, and it’s pretty good looking. If you want to use a shutdown of your PC with a gesture, even if you don’t touch the screen, here’s how you can get the function of Slide-to-Shutdown using the shortcut on the desktop.

On the desktop, will appear a clickable icon that you can rename. Double-click on it and drag the window down.

Navigate using Explorer to the following folder:
Find the file slidetoshutdown.exe. Just Right click on it and select pin to the start screen or on the taskbar.
