Many times I have shut down my PC directly from the switch without opting for normal PC shutdown process to save time or when PC takes much longer than normal. I just need to know that is it a safe practice or I must quit doing this any further.

Well, this is completely wrong, you should not simply press the power button or restart the computer while Windows is still running unless there is a situation that could not be resolved without the reboot. MS has involved shut down characteristic since it enables a PC to go through entire essential steps that are necessary before switching off the computer. In fact, numerous versions of MS Windows will confirm computer for harms if the computer is not shut down appropriately.
