windows shutdown button RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have set my shutdown button to restart but when updates are available, it turns to a shutdown and install update button.

    Is there a way to stop this? I do not want this button to be anything other than restart. I set it to this in gpedit btw.

    This is 7 x64

    Do not adjust default option to 'Install Updates and Shut Down' in Shut Down Windows dialog box
    This policy setting allows administrators to manage whether the Install Updates and Shut Down option is allowed to be the default choice in the Shut Down Windows dialog box.

    If you enable this policy setting, the user's last shutdown choice (Hibernate, Restart, etc.) is the default option in the Shut Down Windows dialog box, regardless of whether the Install Updates and Shut Down option is available in the What do you want the computer to do? list.

    If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, the Install Updates and Shut Down option will be the default option in the Shut Down Windows dialog box if updates are available for installation at the time the user clicks Shut Down on the Start menu.

    Note that this policy setting has no impact if the Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Update\Do not display 'Install Updates and Shut Down' in Shut Down Windows dialog box policy setting is enabled. The administrative user and the non-administrative user would have the same experience if non-administrators have shutdown rights.

    Do not display 'Install Updates and Shut Down' in Shut Down Windows dialog box
    This policy setting enabled allows admins to manage whether the Install Updates and Shut Down option is displayed in the Shut Down Windows dialog box.

    If you enable this policy setting, the Install Updates and Shut Down option will not appear as a choice in the Shut Down Windows dialog box, even if updates are available for installation when the user clicks Shut Down on the Start menu.

    If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, the Install Updates and Shut Down option will be available in the Shut Down Windows dialog box if updates are available when the user clicks Shut Down on the Start menu. The administrative user and the non-administrative user would have the same experience.

  • Thanks, that confirms it. I thought I found it last night but I was not quite sure.

  • In case you enable this setting by policy, are the updates going to be installed during Shut Down or they are going to be ignored?

    Thanks in advance.
