    No shutdown option from within Lock Screen


    For some reason I have not got the shutdown options within the Lock Screen. They are only in the login but I want to have them in the Lock Screen as I may find myself unable to access login screen sometime in the future. I would like to have that functionality.

    I have confirmed the option in my Security Policies is set to disabled but I'm guessing this is not the correct setting. Please advise, as I know it's possible but cannot find the option at the moment. I'm guessing it is most likely in the registry somewhere but have not checked there as yet. Thanks! :)

    Press and hold the power button. Or set the power button option, in Advanced Power Options, to Shut Down the system for both AC powered and Battery powered.

    Not sure why you wouldn't be able to access the login screen. No need to actually Log In. That option is available from the Log In screen where you type in your password.

    Because I've had it where people cannot access login screen options due to system failure but can still get to the lock screen. Restart+Shift can then be used to access Advanced Start Menu via lock screen instead. It provides another simple option to access bios or whatever if the need arises. :) (instead of looking for boot disk, rescue disk, Linux live disk etc etc)

    It is for the above reasons that your solution does not resolve my query. But thanks anyhow. I know it is possible to have the power shutdown button on the Lock screen on Win10. I'd just like to have it here too (for shift+restart functionality)
