Create Shutdown / Restart / Lock Icons in Win7

Create Shutdown / Restart / Lock Icons in Windows 7 or Vista

If you dislike the new Windows Vista shutdown menu, you are probably in the majority. An alternative option is to create icons that will let you shut down, lock, or restart your computer without having to mess with that stupid popup menu.

Of course, Windows 7 makes the shutdown menu a lot better, but if you want a shortcut elsewhere or to assign a hotkey, this should help you out.

This tip is nothing new, and probably very old hat to most of the advanced geeks reading this feed. I’ve been asked this question so many times in the last month that I decided to finally just write it up for everybody.

Migration on XP to Win7 presents its challanges working in a corporate environment.

The expectation is that Win7 is better but I am finding most customers want the old 'feel' back of XP when it comes to day to day workflow. The taskbar is one of those items...

I am finding about 50% of the users want the old way back...

The rest try out the new way with jumplists...

I found this one on the Win7 forum...
