HowTo: Change from default of "Shutdown" to "Restart"? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Win7100

    Can I change the "Start" option from a default of "Shutdown" to "Restart"?

    Almost 100% of the time, my preference is Restart.

    I am a software developer with products that need to work on multiple versions of Windows. I tend to shift around between partitions on a regular basis ... sometimes several times per day.

    4) In dropdown choose "Restart"
    5) "OK"

    Yep. Thats the way to do it. now if only they can color code those options, and add a positive "confirmation screen" to advoid accidental clicks.

  • No, no, no! No confirmation screens! We already discussed that a week or two ago.

    Confirmation screen was good for XP, where all you could get was one "shut down" button, under which were all the sub-features -- stand by, hybernate, shut down.
    In Win7, each and every one of available options is available in the dropdown, hence the no need for any confirmation screens, since there is instant choice.

    Accidental clicks? I'm sorry, but people who can't hit a button right shouldn't make harder the lives of people who can.
