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.
