When you're performing your computing tasks day In, day out, you will Inevitably have the need to either put It to sleep, give It a reboot or completely shut It down. The most common method to do either of these, Is via the Windows 10 Start menu, but the option Is also available at the Sign In screen. If you do not want users performing these actions prior to logging Into Windows, In this tutorial, I will show you how to securely remove the Power Icon at the Sign In screen.
Before I make a start, here's what I'm referring to. When restarting or locking your PC and also switching between users, along with other settings, the Power Icon will be available with Its respective options as shown below.
This allows you to put your computer to Sleep, Shut It down or Restart It before logging Into the Windows environment. If you prefer performing the said actions whilst signed Into Windows (thus allowing you to first close active programs & applications), I will demonstrate how to securely remove the Power Icon In Its entirety.
To do this, I will use the good old Local Security Policy. Do note that the LSP Is only available In Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise and Education editions. If you're running either of these, then this tutorial Is for you. The process Is extremely simple, so without further ado, let's get this started.
