hello,

im wanting to disable a shutdown prompt that appears with windows 8.

ive installed a 'soluto' equivalent to a start menu, using their website and software, tweaks etc.

for some reason I now get a prompt when I click on the 'shutdown' button in the start-menu on the desktop.

is their a way of disabling this ?

many thanks

stuart

ps... I have checked with soluto, they have been no help.

... the prompt reminds me of an old 98,xp feature, where a drop down arrow appears, and asks wether you want to shutdown, restart, sleep etc etc ...

Hello Stuart, and welcome to Eight Forums.

It sounds like they used the command for "Shut Down Windows" shortcut like below instead......

....of a "Shut Down Computer" shortcut like below.

If you like, you could use the "Power" desktop context menu from the tutorial below to make it easy to use for this.


Hope this helps, :)
Shawn
