- 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.
Note that this manual describes the latest beta. As a result, if you are using the stable version of Shutter, you may not have some of the features described here. Also, the screenshots shown here may be a little different from the interface you see.
