Turning off the Windows Server - Shutdown Event Tracker

I often need to reboot the lab server that I am working on. One of the minor annoyances is the Shutdown Event Tracker that pops up and asks for a reason. When you are restarting the box several times during one work period this can be a real pain. So I learned how to shut it off.

Running gpedit.msc (Group Policy Object Editor) gives you the option to change this. Go to Computer Configuration:Administrative Templates:System and find the Display Shutdown Event Tracker settting.

Change the setting to Disabled and you are all set. Another minute saved.
