Shortcut for log off

By dennisbv ·
I would like to know if it is possiable to create a shortcut for a user to log off. I want a quick way of disconecting from the network. My boss want us to leave the computers on but I would like to get it to the login screen.

If available:
Window (Flag key between Ctrl and Alt)+ C + Enter. ("U" will do a full shut down)

You didn't specify OS.
WINNT: CTRL+ALT+DEL then "L" and [ENTER] will log you off but leave the machine 'up'
WINNT (alternate): 'WIN' key, then 'U', then 'C', then [ENTER] does the same thing ('C' = "Close all programs and log on as a differentuser."
WIN98: 'WIN' key then L then [ENTER] should bring you back to the login prompt with the machine up.

I have used a logoff.exe utility that is found in the NT Resource Kit. The utility can be ran from a batch file. A shortcut to the batch file can be placed on the Windows desktop for the user to click. The utility will log the user off of the computer.

LOGOFF [/F] [/N]


Logoff, by default(using no switches), will ask for user confirmation
and prompt to save unsaved data.

/F,/f Forces running processes to close, but will ask for user confirmation.
The user will NOT be asked to save unsaved data.
/N,/n User will be logged-off without confirmation, however the user
will be prompted to save unsaved data.
