Change the action of the Stop button in Windows 7

When you go to start menu and you take a look at the Stopbutton by default, clicking this button shuts down your computer.

To perform a different action, like, switch users, pause, restart, .. you must click the right arrow button and pick what you want.

But there is a very simple method to change the default action of this famous Stop button.

  • Right click on your taskbar
  • Left click on Properties
  • In this new window, go to the tab menu
  • You just have to choose the action of the power button you want.
  • Apply changes to confirm the changes.

For this tutorial, I chose to change the action Stop by rebooting. This is your last button performs the action you use most often.
