    Why is there no reboot option in Hyper-V?

    All I see when I right click my servers is "reset" and there is no reboot option. Reset isn't the same, right? So how can I reboot as opposed to resetting?

    Use elevated PowerShell to manage Hyper-V. In screenshot below I have booted a vm, then restarted it and finally shut it down:

    Start a vm: Start-VM "vm name"
    Restart a vm: Restart-VM "vm name"
    Shut down a vm: Stop-VM "vm name"
    Use Reset only in emergency situations when vm simply does not work, is totally frozen. It's hard reset, same as if you hold down the power button on a physical machine for a few seconds to make it turn off instead of shut down, then start the machine again.
