Is there a way to shut down Windows 7 using voice control and only a single command. Windows 7 does provide voice control shutdown, but you have to say: start > show numbers > 8 then it will shutdown.

Any simple direct command to do that?

I'm surprised that opening the start menu and then saying "Shut Down" doesn't do the trick. – Keithius Mar 20 '11 at 18:07
in windows 7 it writes 'shut down' in the run box. – the_archer Mar 21 '11 at 12:13

Make program called "source" which runs normal shutdown, then you just have to say the words "open source" and Windows will automatically shut itself down.
