    How to implement SlideToShutdown.exe?


    So I know it's old news but while perusing the filesystem on my 8.1 tablet, I noticed again the slidetoshutdown.exe. My question is if anybody knows how to implement this in a useful way such as replacing the Shutdown command in the power menu or invoking if from a long press on the hardware power button?

    In a nutshell, I'd like it to behave like WP8.1.

    I pinned it to the taskbar. Click it and and tap or click the screen and walk away.

Been searching around to find how to implement buttons I create with CorelDraw to use with windows 8 startup menu. What format (png or jpeg I presume) and what folder to store them in. There must be a way to do this. Any thoughts? Thanks.
