    Can I rearrange shutdown options in the Start menu and Login screen


    The options via the Start menu and Login screen are (in order):


    • Sleep
    • Shutdown
    • Restart


    I'd rather Shutdown be at the bottom to make it simpler to choose it.

    Have a look at this => Change Default Action of Shut Down Windows Dialog in Windows 10.

    I hope this helps!

    Hi LAPIII, I'm sorry I don't have the answer for your question but I thought I'd present a solution that I use that does simplify the shutdown process.

    I use Classic Shell which presents the following dialogue box for shutdown;

    Classic Shell has been discontinued and replaced by Open Shell. Both programs will allow you to customize your start menu in many ways and to look similar to Windows 7.


    Welcome to the Home page of Open-Shell-Menu | Open-Shell-Menu


    Another great tool for tweaking the start menu and more is Winaero Tweaker. One of the many great features of Winaero Tweaker is that the author, Sergey Tkachenko will provide all of the details about how the tweak works and how to manually adjust the registry files to accomplish the tweak yourself.A great learning tool, if that interests you. Or you can just make quick and easy changes using a GUI.

    You could create three shortcuts: one for Sleep, one for Shutdown, and one for Restart.

    The Sleep shortcut references "%windir%\system32\Rundll32.exe Powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState Sleep"
    The Shutdown shortcut references "shutdown.exe /s /t 00"
    The Restart shortcut references "shutdown.exe /r /t 00"

    Place these three shortcuts in a convenient spot.
    On the desktop. On the start menu. Wherever you wish, in whatever order you like.
