2. Check if the application or the process are being run

Some applications or processes may run in the background. They could prevent the computer from turning off completely. Press the Ctrl + Shift + Esc keys to open the Task Manager and make sure all applications are closed before starting a shutdown.

Ideally, you should close all open windows and applications before closing. Windows takes longer to close these applications and may require you to save your work before exiting. These can cause additional delays or errors.

3. Stop Force

There is a way to force the shutdown of your computer, which only takes a few moments. Press and hold the power button for a few seconds. It is possible that the next time you stop, things will be better. Otherwise, go to the next point.

7. Startup applications

Some applications and programs are designed to launch when you start your computer. Depending on the number of applications and their complexity, startup and shutdown times may vary from one computer to another. Good time to do some housework. Download and open CCleaner or you can choose another reputable application.

Click Start under Tools

9. Scan SFC

The SFC Scan System File Checker searches for corrupt system files and attempts to repair them. Open the command prompt with administrator rights and give the command below.

Try turning off your computer and see if you are still stuck or not.

Do not stop

Ideally, the shutdown process should proceed smoothly and is required from time to time. It's frustrating to be stuck on a screen that's out, but you should not spend hours there either. If this does not work in minutes, except in case of installation of an update, follow this guide.
