Under normal circumstances when you restart Windows it closes all programs and saves your data etc. This takes a little time as you will probably be aware. There are sometimes occasions where you need to perform an instant restart and you are not bothered about saving any data you are working on. You may have a 'hanging' program and need to perform an emergency restart to get out of the loop?
Whatever the reason here is how to go about performing an emergency restart. Note that by doing this you will be discarding any data that you were working on such as open word documents and the like. Also note that it is not a recommended way of restarting and should be used in an emergency only.

On Windows 8/8.1 press and hold the Ctrl/Alt/Delete keys on your keyboard
You should see a screen with lots of options appear.
We are not concerned with any of those options. Instead hold the Ctrl key down and click the small 'power' icon in the bottom right of the screen.
You will see the emergency restart screen where you can click on the OK button to proceed with the emergency restart.

Windows offers emergency restart feature for the situations when the regular restart is not working properly or is taking too long to finish. This feature does not save any data during Windows restart, so you should save any important data before attempting this.
