"Turn Off Computer" option is missing from Start Menu?


When you click Start Menu, the Turn Off Computer option may be missing. This is due to a group policy / registry restriction. To restore the missing option, try this - for stand-alone systems:

Solution:

  •  Open Registry Editor by typing REGEDIT.EXE in the Start, Run dialog. 
  • Navigate to the following locations:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Policies \ Explorer
-and-
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Policies \ Explorer
  • In the right-pane, double-click the value NoClose and set it to 0.
  • Restart Windows for the changes to take effect
NOTE: Backup the Registry before modifying. See this article for more information.
