Windows 10: Shutdown from start menu now restarting
Shutdown from start menu now restarting
System is Windows 10 Pro x64, version 1607 build 14393.321. Ever since the latest cumulative update to this build, I find that about half the time that I select Shutdown from the start menu, I actually get a reboot instead. If I use the command line shutdown.exe -s instead, so far that has not had the same problem.
Any suggestions on why the problem with shutdown off the start menu?

Welcome to the forum!
Let's give the following a whirl...
We are going to boot the PC into Safe Mode. Be aware that hen you boot into Safe Mode, you are only able to sign in with your password!
Please press the Windows key and the R key at the same time.
This opens the Run box
In the Open area, type: msconfig
In System Configuration console, select the Boot tab
Check the box for: Safe boot
Make sure Minimal is also ticked.
Press the OK button
When asked if you want to Restart now or wait until later, Restart now
The restart takes you into Safe Mode.
In Safe Mode, open up msconfig the same way as before.
On the Boot tab uncheck: Safe boot
Press the OK button
When asked if you want to Restart now or >>Exit without Restart<< Select this one
Now, go to the Start button, select Power > Shutdown
Does it Shutdown?
If so, you may have a program that is causing the issue, or an update hiccup.
Post back what happens, and we will take it from there.

In December I installed a GTX 980 in my machine and since then started getting strange behavior randomly at Start up. it didn't happen every start so I could live with it for a while but it was starting to bug me.

As the title says, i want the log off screen colour to be different to my accent colour.
Either the Windows 10 start menu really sucks or I am using it wrong. I am used to the StartisBack/Windows 7 menu where you can pin anything and all applications will come up in search results. In the Windows 10 menu, I can't pin anything to the...
