Thank you for that, Brink. Can I add another couple?
In Control Panel/Power Options, you can set what the Power Buttons do, Sleep/Hibernate/Shutdown (as you always could). What I have only recently learned is that a quick tap on a modern soft touch power button will start the process just the same as all the other ways.
I also use a desktop gadget for Restarting. There are a few that look the same as this but do not have a protective screen over the buttons to prevent accidental use.

Cheers

Batch files on the desktop/folder also work. If a folder was made somewhere with batch files, you could point a toolbar to that folder. Then you could create your own custom log off, restart, etc. toolbar. Now that I think about it, you could add any batch file to the toolbar for that matter.

Some batch (.bat) file or cmd commands:

for a list of different shutdown options type "shutdown" into command prompt (without quotes). Here are some examples for a batch file (.bat):

shutdown -l = logoff (note "l​" is a lowercase "L")
shutdown -s = shutdown
shutdown -r = restart
shutdown -a = aborts running shutdown
shutdown -t 10 = shuts down in 10 seconds (10 can be changed to any number)
shutdown -f = force close all applications and shut down
shutdown -c "text" = shutdown with comment where text is the comment (with quotes)

Note: command prompt might list a backslash instead of a hyphen then a letter as an option (when "shutdown" is typed) but the hyphen works.

Pinning to Start Screen is an option

I've chosen to Pin them onto the Metro Start Screen.

I created the shortcuts per the links in this thread [THANKS!] and then
moved them from my Desktop into my Start Menu folder and they appeared
on the Metro Start Screen.

c:\Users\Windunce\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Shutdown.lnk
etc etc etc

Thanks!

I'm not sure that will be their final resting place.
Tomorrow we all start with a clean slate anyway.
The assumption is that we're all ready for consumption.

Consumer Preview here we come.

I'm loading up my thumb drive with most all the tweaks, files
and folders that I've customized over the last months.

Getting ready to plop them into the new install.

Fun Fun Fun

Derek, from where do these last 2 items in the context menu come from. I don't have those.

I use the easy method. When I want to shut down, I shut the vBox down. I find it terrible that we need a tutorial (thank you Shawn) to shut the system down. Where is the progress.
