Remove Shutdown from Start Menu – Computer Policy

Remove Shutdown from Start Menu by Computer Policy

Prevent users from shutting down or restarting computer once again through computer policy.

The reasons for doing this, and not using the standard ‘user policy’ which removes the shutdown option from the Start Menu, is because the organisation required this for a bunch of meeting room computers. As users use their own logins to login here, a computer policy is the best option as it removes the need for a ‘loopback’ policy which can cause great annoyances with GPO’s.

 

The required GPO settings for this can be found here:

Once implemented, the Start Menu now looks like this:

 

You’ll also notice the Security Option which removes the shutdown option from the log on screen!

Voila!
