But you should really fix your start bar issue. Perhaps auto hide is turned on, or it's set up for a dual monitor and the laptop screen isn't set up as the main screen, or it was dragged to a different edge of the screen, or it could be a combination of these.

You can do It using command prompt.
Start the "Run" Dialog box by pressing "Windows Logo Key + R" then type "cmd" and press OK. And use the code without quote.
For shutdown: "shutdown -s -t 5"
For restart: "shutdown -r -t 5"
