Windows – How to enable reboot in Windows 7 for Remote Desktop sessions

remote desktopshutdownwindows 7

I see that I lack the choice to reboot/shut down via the start menu when logged into Windows 7 via Remote Desktop, whereas it is present in Windows Server 2008 R2. Is there some setting in Windows 7 to enable reboot/shutdown?

The question is specifically about whether it is possible to enable the standard reboot/shutdown controls in the start menu, and if so, how.

Best Answer

There is no way to enable reboot/shutdown from the start menu but usually I go to desktop Start+D and press Alt+F4. This way I get all options. Works on both XP and 7.
