Customize Your Windows 7 Shut Down Button

Tell me, how often do you actually “shut down” your computer? More often than not, do you put it to sleep? Lock it? What if someone else consistently uses the computer after you? Wouldn’t it be nice to just log off?

That’s a lot of questions with one relatively easy answer!

Just right-click your Start button and select “Properties”. Under the Start Menu Tab you’ll see a selection that says “Power button action:” and a drop-down box next to it. Simply drop that box down and select the action you most commonly use with your computer and hit OK.


Now whenever you click the Start button you’ll see the action you chose instead of the usual “Shut Down option!.


If you don’t like it, just follow the same steps and re-select “Shut Down”

Super Easy!
