Add Advanced Restart Options To The Right Click

When restarting your computer within the Windows environment via the Start menu, you do not have a choice to select different ways to reboot. By default, depending on the Windows 10 version you're running, It will either close all apps, or re-open them automatically when rebooting your PC. Wouldn't It be nice If you had a selection via the right-click of the mouse? Well, In this tutorial, I will show you how to add advanced restart options to the right-click context menu.

There are a number of methods In how you'd like your PC to restart, however some options are somewhat buried In the operating system, or not readily available to the end user. For Instance, to access Advanced startup, you need to navigate to System Settings > Update & security > Recovery, and then click on Restart now. This Is certainly not very convenient.

To simply the process, I will demonstrate how to add advanced restart options to the right-click, thereby you can Instantly make your selection. To do this, I will use a neat little Registry file that will add the entries to the Windows Registry, and apply the options thereafter. The result Is the same as the Image above.

All that's required on your part, Is to double-click the Registry file, follow a couple of prompts, and the job's done. I have provided the download links to the files, at the end of this article. So without further delay, let's rip Into this tutorial.

Step One:

Once you've downloaded the file, extract It's contents to a folder of your choice. Then, double-click the Add Restart.reg file, and hit Yes.

Step Two:

A message will be returned, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Registry. Click OK to finalize the process.

Step Three:

I've navigated to my computer's desktop, right-clicked on a blank area and as you can see, the Restart option Is available with It's respective settings. Let's test the one that's enclosed In red.

Step Four:

My PC Is now restarting with a single click of the mouse. Excellent!

Step Five:

It's now booting Into the Windows environment, hence all has gone well.

Step Six:

Now I'll access the Advanced Startup Options, as shown In red below.

Step Seven:

It's now ready to boot Into Advanced Startup, so patience Is a must. It's actually pretty quick.

Step Eight:

And here's the available options. Let's click on Troubleshoot.

Step Nine:

If I had Issues with my PC, I can perform a System Restore, recover It using the System Image Recovery and more.

Last Step:

In the event you change your mind and want to remove the Restart option from the right-click, execute the Remove.reg file, and hit Yes.

Final Thoughts:

There are a couple more restart options to choose from, but It's beyond the scope of this article to demonstrate them both. Along with having each option at your fingertips, the good thing about this tweak, Is that It automatically adds the entries to the Windows Registry, hence It's not susceptible to corruption.
