How many times have you held your head in your hands after accidentally shutting down Windows only to realize there was some important task left to finish. Of course, you can start Windows PC all over again, but when you are about to go to bed, it can become an annoying experience. There is a simple solution to this well known problem – add some delay to the shutdown, reboot, hibernate or log off events so that when you try to perform any of these, you are given a 60 seconds grace period in which you can cancel the shutdown of Windows.
The Kwikoff tools provide you exactly that power. Using the Kwikoff tools, you can have some time (60 seconds by default) to cancel any of these operations (shutdown, reboot, log off, hibernate or standby). You can also change the time period from a few seconds to many hours. This way you have complete control over how and when your PC is shutdown or rebooted.
After the installation, you will be able to view the shortcuts to all the five tools on the Windows Desktop. You can launch any of these desired tools to perform the respective action. It gives you 60 seconds to cancel the operation. You can click on the Now button to quickly perform the action or the Cancel button to cancel the action.
You can alter the countdown from 1 to 60 seconds from under the Countdown menu. Similarly, you can change the Timer from 15 minutes to 90 minutes. As is apparent, the countdown is used for smaller periods of time while the timer is used for performing the selected action after a long duration of time.
Conclusion: Kwikoff is a collection of tools using which you can have more control about when your Windows PC is shutdown, rebooted, logged off, hibernated and put in the standby mode.
