    What is the easiest way to get Tasker to shutdown my computer?
    I do not mind installing an application on my PC to turn it off.
    Does anyone know were a step-by-step guide is? Amazingly, I can't find any guides that work or within the last year.

    Welcome to Android Forums.

    What do you mean by "shut down my computer"? What computer is it? Do you mean "power down"? Do you have an application currently running on that computer that does what you want?

    If you are talking about having a phone send a command to a Windows (7? 8? 10?) computer and powering it down ... I am really curious as to (1) why you would want to open it to that potential security hole and (2) why would you want to do it? Why wouldn't you just control the computer from an application that is running on the computer and is not accessible from the outside?

    EventGhost can do this easily, among other things :)

    Indeed, EventGhost is the (only?) way to go, coupled with AutoRemote. Look at this tutorial: http://joaoapps.com/autoremote/eventghost/

    Since some of my workmates are a bit facetious, my Android Wear watch has a shortcut to lock my laptop remotely, it works very well.
