Despite its name, its use is not limited to shutting down a program or the PC: Shutter can wait for one or more events and then execute a lot of diverse actions, such as-

  • Launch specified application(s)
  • Close specified application window(s)
  • Kill specified application(s) even if they are running in system tray.
  • Play a custom sound
  • Display a message on screen
  • Disconnect the dial-up modem
  • Log out from Windows account,
  • Lock the desktop or start a screensaver.
  • Shut down the PC, reboot, hibernate, sleep, etc.

Apart from a user-friendly and easy-to-use interface, Shutter also offers the following options:

  • You can create links on Desktop, to execute any of the supported actions directly from the desktop.
  • You can use Shutter's Web Interface to remotely execute any action.
You can also remotely see the run-time information about the computer: Logged In User, Up Time, List of Processes, Screenshot of a Desktop, plus Command Line Execution.
