Do you want to prevent other users from shutting down your PC when it’s locked?

Do you want to remove the Shutdown button on the logon screen?

As you know, when locked or turned on, Windows 10 shows you a login screen where you need to type the password in order to access your Desktop.

Sometimes having the shutdown button accessible – especially when your user account is protected with a password – can be troublesome.

In this easy tutorial, you will learn how to prevent people from shutting down your PC when locked.

We will be using two methods, the first with the Local Group Policy Editor and the second using the Registry Editor.

Let’s go!
