Apply Custom Shutdown Options On Right Click

We're all different to some degree, In how we operate with our overall computing usability on a daily basis, and the method used In shutting down our PC, Is certainly part of the equation. Some users prefer to close every app when booting down, whilst others like to restart apps on next boot up and so forth. As a result, In this tutorial, I will show you how to apply custom shutdown options to the right-click context menu.

This tweak does not change the default shutdown behavior of Windows 10, but rather adds custom options to the right-click of the mouse, thus allows users to be selective on how to boot down their computer. The options that I'm referring to, are as per the Image above.

To achieve this, I will use a neat little Registry file, that will automatically add the entries to the Windows Registry and apply the settings thereafter. All that's required on your part, Is to execute the file and follow a couple of prompts. I've provided the download links to the Registry files, at the end of this article. So without further delay, let's get this tutorial started.

Step One:
Once you've downloaded the file, extract It's contents to a folder of your choice, and then double-click the Apply Shutdown.reg file. It will ask whether to add the entries to the Registry, so hit Yes.

Step Two:
A message will now be returned, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Registry. Hit OK to finalize the process.

Step Three:
I've now right-clicked on a blank area on my desktop, and as you can see, the Shut down option Is available with all the alternatives as Illustrated below.

Last Step:
In the event you've changed your mind and want to remove the Shut down option, simply double-click the Remove Shutdown.reg file and hit Yes.

Final Thoughts:
In terms of the Shutdown option(s) used, there's no right or wrong- It's an "each to their own" scenario based on one's computing preference and usability. If you have multiple users on your PC, In order to prevent abusing the Shutdown options, I strongly suggest creating dedicated local user accounts for each person.

Use any of the links below to download the aforementioned Registry files.
