  • You might try setting the policy Computer Configuration->Windows Settings->Security Settings->Local Policies->User Rights Assignment->"Shut down the system" to allow all users to do so.

    Group Policy Settings for Start Menu and Taskbar:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/it-pro/windows-7/ee617162(v=ws.10)

    Go to show all settings for that Group Policy Object, maybe there is a Computer Configuration setting.

    Only administrators. Non admins cannot restart or shutdown the computer.  It is designed that way for a reason.

    Shutdown Option not available, only Logoff User

  • Hi,

    How many users are are facing the same issue?

    As is shown below, the inappropriate policy is applied on the client machine.

            Administrative Templates
            ------------------------
                GPO: Default Domain Controllers Policy
                    Setting: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
                    State:   disabled

    Please navigate to HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer and check if there is Registry Value:"NoClose":

    =========================================================
    Policy:Disable and remove the Turn Off Computer button
    Description:Removes the "Turn Off Computer" button from the Start Menu and
    prevents shutting down Windows using the standard shutdown user interface.
    Registry Value:"NoClose" 

    If so, please delete it for check.

    Thanks

    Saurabh

  • Hi,

    What's the Operating System of client PC?

    In order to confirm specific Group Policy settings that are applied, please run the command below when logged on as user who doesn't have access to Shutdown/Restart buttons:
