Custom Start Menu Power Switch

By default, Windows 7 displays the Shut Down button on the Start menu with an arrow for other options like Restart and Log Off. If you use one of the other options more often, you can change the default Shut Down option to one of the other options by right-clicking on the Start button and selecting 'Properties'. Click on the 'Power Boot Action' drop down menu and select your desired option and click 'Apply'.
