It is

Hold shift key down while shutting down your OS/ computer

All of it is important; most of it vital; and all of it just too much for one brain to absorb in 1-2 lessons" TC

That does a real OS shut down and not the fake one used for fast startup 'feature-bug'

Easy way to shut down your computer is make a shutdownbutton on your desktop. (Old school style)

Open notepad, and type:

@echo on
shutdown /f /s /t 5

Then save it to desk top ie. shutdown.bat or what ever name you want, but the extension must be .bat
That will do the job. Just doubleclick it when you want to shutdown yoour computer.

Shutdown is windows command and parameters are:

/f  shuts / forces down all programs without warning (works with parameter /t)

/s  shuts down your computer / server

/t 5  delays shutdown time in sec.

You can chk and use more parameters in cmd and type shutdown /?

What is the advantage of shutting down windows this way and does it start back up with the computer?

Do you mean the Shift trick or the Shutdown button trick? Either way, your computer will start normally. And by normally I mean really normally without carrying any corrupted settings from the shutdown situation. The link Denniss provided tells you more about it.

Shortly put, these tricks are the Old Skool way of fixing any issues by shutting down and restarting fresh and clean.

So what these "techies" are saying is when you normally shut down your computer Windows remembers how some things were left and tries to put them back the same way. Sometimes it fails and these files/memories become corrupted and cause problems.

Shutting down with the use of the "shift" key or the bat file shut it down completely with out windows trying to "help" you by remembering and then using these files/memories when you restart your computer. Instead you'll get a clean restart.
