Windows 10 login screen missing power button icon

Hello all,

After reset to Windows 10, login screen is missing the power option icon.  Can someone please help me get it back?  It is a handy option that was used often in 8.1.  After upgrading to Windows 10, it was there, but had other issues, so chose the reset option for a clean install.

Thank you



I had the same issue and came across  your original post and follow up question when searching for an answer. I'm in much the same boat as you having never really messed around with registry before, but decided to risk it and see what would happen if I just added the missing shutdownwithoutlogon value. It worked!

  • So navigate to the same key in the registry; HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
  • >right click>New>DWORD (32-bit) Value
  • Call it 'shutdownwithoutlogon' and with base set to hexadecimal set the value to 1.
  • Restart and hopefully all will be good.

Maybe you already worked this out too but hope this helps somebody.
