Well, if you walked away from your computer and remembered that you want to turn it off, you can actually do it from your phone!
Go through the installation process on your PC (it’s easy and there’s no spyware or any other nonsense that comes with it). Once finished, make sure the server app is running on your PC, and then open up the app on your phone. It’ll scan for a server on your local network, and once it finds it, it’ll let you control your PC.
Now, the way the app works is with a bunch of different remotes. There are remotes that’ll let you control your PC as if it was a mouse and keyboard, but turning off the PC with that would be difficult if you aren’t in the room. The remote we want is called Power. Click that, and then click Shutdown or Restart to turn your PC off.
