Shutdown timer not visible in Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using the shutdown.exe command; In Windows XP whenever there was a shutdown timed event occuring, you would see a window with the time remaining and the reason. In Windows 7, you see a 1 time window with a rounded number and the time it will intiate, nothing more. Is there a way to bring back the visual countdown timer that you would see with XP?

  • Sad if that's true. It was a good way to notify users of the reason and time remaining.
