    Remove Restart Option

    When a user clicks, Start > Shutdown, they are presented with a drop down list of options which includes: shut down, log off, restart and hibernate.

    Is there a way of modifying this list so that restart is no longer an option?

    Re: Remove Restart Option

    The only way I've been able to get rid of the restart option, is to remove access to the Shut Down command via GPs. and then create shortcuts on the start menu and desktop to either shutdown.exe or psshutdown.exe via a script.

    It was the only way to stop people from putting their PCs in stand by as well.

    There may be other ways.

    Re: Remove Restart Option

    The Only ones i am aware can can be done is remove the log off, standby, turn off buttons but never seen the resart button taken off so this will be something new to.. i don't see no reason for why it can't be done.

    I dont have a server infront of me so i cnt check but can this be done via

    Active Directory Users and Computers > on domain click Properties > Click the Group Policy tab > Click Edit > Expand User Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, and then click Start Menu & Taskbar

    Most likly not but i can't remember if i saw that option there or not like i say i have no server to try first

    Appoligies if i am totally wrong

    Regards

    James

    Remove and prevent access to the Shut Down command

    Administrative Templates\Start Menu and Taskbar

    Think the above one might be a bit over kill , not sure ?
