(If you know a way to improve these shortcuts, please advise!)

Here are a few I use that I think are of value to others:
o slideshut.lnk

o abortshut.lnk
%Windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -a

o reboot.lnk
%Windir%\System32\shutdown.exe /r /f /t 5 /c "Reboot in 5 seconds!"

o dismountall.lnk
VeraCrypt.exe /dismount /force

o Mount-X.lnk
VeraCrypt.exe /volume X.hc /letter X /auto /quit /explore /beep

o Mount-X-Y.lnk
%comspec% /c VeraCrypt.exe /volume X.hc /letter X /auto /quit /explore & VeraCrypt.exe /volume Y.hc /letter Y /auto /quit /explore

o killprog1.lnk
%Windir%\System32\taskkill.exe /im "prog1.exe" /t /f

o killprog1-prog2.lnk
%comspec% /c %Windir%\System32\taskkill.exe /im "prog1.exe" /t /f & %Windir%\System32\taskkill.exe /im "prog2.exe" /t /f
