Windows 10 and Windows 11 have a secret emergency restart button hidden within the Ctrl + Alt + Del screen

This emergency restart function can be accessed by holding down the Ctrl key and clicking on the power button at the bottom right of the screen

A full-screen message appears, warning that unsaved data will be lost and advising to use this option only as a last resort

Clicking "OK" immediately restarts the computer without any further confirmation

This hidden feature provides an alternative warm start option when other methods might not work

It can be used before resorting to a cold start by manually turning off the PC or disconnecting it from the power supply
