Want to Improve Shutdown Time

Want to Improve Shutdown Time !

Close apps automatically & quickly at shutdown

Open Registry by going to START-RUN and typing REGEDIT.

Navigate to


and look for AutoEndTasks.
On my computer default value is 0. Change it to 1.

Thats all.

Further more you can reduce the time it takes for Windows to issue kill directive to all active/hung applications. In doing this only constraint that you should make sure exists is that HungAppTimeout is greater than WaitToKillAppTimeout. Change the values of WaitToKillAppTimeout to say 3500
(since default value for HungAppTimeout 5000 and for
WaitToKillAppTimeout is 20000)
