    Get to admin GUI while using Classic Shell


    I am going crazy trying to get to an admin level graphical user interface so I
    can change the "power" settings in Windows 10 in order to turn off fast boot. I
    am running Classic Shell menu system, and it doesn't
    recognize right-click to get to an admin level. (It does on some entries but not
    the one I need!) I have been able to get to an admin terminal, but as you
    probably know, nothing in a Windows terminal has the same
    name as anything in the GUI. Is there a way to get back to a GUI menu from an
    admin terminal? Alternatively, is there a command in the terminal that will turn off fast boot?

    I need to turn off fast boot so I can connect to the Windows partition from
    Linux. Otherwise, Linux thinks Windows is still running, and won't connect.
    (Windows doesn't shut down everything when you shut off the power,
    unless you turn off fast boot.)

    I think you're referring to Fast Startup. Fast Boot is something in the BIOS. See option #2 here.
    Fast Startup - Turn On or Off in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    You can get to the Power Settings through Control Panel.
    In the future, you can go into the configuration settings for Classic Shell's Start Menu and show Administrative Tools.
