    Add shortcut to Power options?


    The Power options on the Start Menu has 3 items: Sleep, Shut down and Restart. I've created a shortcut to lock the screen, which is on the desktop. Is it possible to include it in the Power options?

    Welcome to TenForums DoctorJellybean,

    I'm not sure how to achieve what you are asking but there are 2 things (you may or may not be aware of?)

    1.) When you click Start, instead of clicking power options, click your username (at the top) and there is an option to Lock there.
    2.) Pressing these 2 keys together will lock the screen WIN + L (This is my preferred method to locking the screen)

    Cheers,
    Jamie

    Ah, thank you!

    I did know about the keys, but not about the username option. That will do :)

    Click your username/avatar at the top for the lock option
