    Shortcuts to open power menu or user menu.


    Does anyone know if there's a command that can be pasted into a shortcut; That opens the power menu or user menu? I.e where you sign out or lock your computer.

    The shortcut is meant to be on the desktop.

    Some screenshots showing what menus I'm referring to.

    You could try the following, although 'Lock' will not show in this menu:

    Paste the following into Notepad and Save as power.vbs in your C: directory:

    Code:
    dim objShell
    set objShell = CreateObject("shell.application")
    objshell.ShutdownWindows
    set objShell = nothing
    now, create a shortcut for your desktop and name it whatever you wish.
    Right click on the shortcut chose properties, Change Icon, and give it a 'power' icon or something suitable.
