Hi guys,
a while back I found some tutorial how to add power options to the task bar. I can't find this information anymore.
I am using version 22000.918 and would like the shut-down button and the reboot button to the task bar again.
I have both working fine on a pre-release version, but don't remember what exactly I did.
Can somebody point me to the right direction?
Thanks

You can literally just click the start button (which is on the taskbar, right where you want it), and there you have shutdown options.
If you really really want to skip that 1 click, I guess you can pin a shortcut to a shutdown.cmd file to the taskbar.

On your desktop right click and select new-shortcut. In the location of the item box type C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /s /t 0
click next-Name it Shutdown click OK
Right click on the shortcut-select properties-click 'change icon. Choose an icon of your choice, either one the shell icons or browse to one of your own. OK
Then right click on shortcut again and select "pin to taskbar".

Do the same procedure again except in the location box type C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /r /t 0
Name this shortcut Restart

Once the icons are pinned to taskbar you can delete them from the desktop if you wish.
