How To Enable Quick Reboot in Windows

This setting allows you to use the quick reboot function to restart Windows immediately without shutting down. When enabled, press Shift + Ctrl + Alt + Delete for a quick reboot.

Open your registry and find or create the key below.

Create a new String value, or modify the existing value, called “EnableQuickReboot” and set it according to the value data below.

Exit your registry; you may need to restart or log out of Windows for the change to take effect.

Note: This method of rebooting should only be used when the system has stopped responding as some shutdown and clean-up functions will not be run.

Registry Settings:

System Key:[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWinlogon]
Value Name: EnableQuickReboot
Data Type: REG_SZ (String Value)
Value Data: (0 = disabled, 1 = enabled)

Using Regedit to modify your Registry
Once you have started the Regedit you will notice that on the left side there is a tree with folders, and on the right the contents (values) of the currently selected folder.

Like Windows explorer, to expand a certain branch (see the structure of the registry section), click on the plus sign [+] to the left of any folder, or just double-click on the folder. To display the contents of a key (folder), just click the desired key, and look at the values listed on the right side. You can add a new key or value by selecting New from the Edit menu, or by right-clicking your mouse. And you can rename any value and almost any key with the same method used to rename files; right-click on an object and click rename, or click on it twice (slowly), or just press F2 on the keyboard. Lastly, you can delete a key or value by clicking on it, and pressing Delete on the keyboard, or by right-clicking on it, and choosing Delete.

Note: it is always a good idea to backup your registry before making any changes to it. It can be intimidating to a new user, and there is always the possibility of changing or deleting a critical setting causing you to have to reinstall the whole operating system. It’s much better to be safe than sorry!
