    task manager right click "restart" option missing

    Ill be the first to admit my windows install is far from default. Ive tweaked this or that with winaero tweaker and registry entries to pare down the context menu etc.

    I often need to restart explorer by right clicking the process in the task manager and the option seems to have disappeared.

    Anyone know what its tied to/have any ideas?

    Left click on it. The Restart button will be at the bottom of the window.

    unfortunately it only shows end task. Just tested on another pc and it does show restart. so whatever is causing restart to not appear in the context menu is the same thing that changes the button at the bottom from end task to restart.
