I see that a lot more needs to be told.

An OS is one thing.
A forum is yet another.

You are in a forum, not an OS so you need to tell a lot more about what you are trying to do as well as the goal.

For the web end you use something like http://kanaka.github.io/noVNC/noVNC/vnc.html and then put the FreeBSD into a Virtual Machine on say Virtual Box.

Lots of things to setup but in the end it's web access.

What is this about a forum?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
