  • How To Disable Shutdown Option in Window Server

    Let's see how to disable the Shut Down option in Windows Server 2003/2008 :

    1. Go to Start > Run
    2. Type in gpedit.msc
    3. The Group Policy window will appear.
    Choose User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Start Menu & Task-bar from the left-hand side panel
    4. In the right-hand side panel, double-click on Remove And Prevent Access To Shut Down Command
    5. A pop will appear. Set it to Enabled

    This will remove the Shutdown option from the Start menu immediately after clicking Apply.
    The system can only be shutdown via the command prompt from this point forward.
