How To Access The Emergency Restart

It's Inevitable that during your computing tasks, your PC will lose functionality, hence the native restart or shutdown options cannot be accessed. As such, you're forced to use the power button to shut It down and reboot thereafter. This Is not good practice and can cause damage to the point of corrupting the operating system. In this tutorial, I will show you how to access the Emergency restart option within Windows Itself.

In my experience, the majority of users on the Windows platform, have yet to come across the Emergency restart option, mainly because It's a hidden feature that (unless you know what keys to press) Is Inaccessible. This actually serves the same purpose as holding the power button, but with less damage to your computer.

It only Involves a couple of steps to access It, and once you've read the following tutorial, you'd be surprised just how simple the process Is. So let's get this happening.

Step One:
The first thing you need to do, Is press Ctrl+Alt+Delete on your keyboard, In the same fashion as when you access Windows Task Manger. Then, hold the Ctrl key and at the same time, click on the Power button as arrowed below.

Last Step:
You will now see the following screen. Simply click OK, and your computer will restart.

Final Thoughts:
As you've realized, this Is a hidden feature embedded In the Windows operating system. There's no option within Windows Itself. Why? Well, this should only be used when your PC loses functionality and when It does, If the option was available via a particular setting, how will you access It?

As a reminder, be sure to hold the Ctrl key and hit the Power button at the same time. It will not work If you fail to do so.
