Tweak the Shutdown Button in Windows 7

Here is another quick tip for tonight.

If you ever wanted the shutdown button in the Start Menu in Windows 7 to do something else other than shutdown the computer you can change it to do something else such as:

  • switch users
  • log off,
  • lock your computer,
  • restart your computer,
  • put your computer to sleep
  • hibernate your computer.

If you fancy doing this, all you need to do is right click the Start button and then click on “Properties”. You should then see a window similar to this one:

Simply choose your desired option from the list, click OK and you’re done!
