Windows 7: Start menu power button

Start menu power button

In the Start Menu the only two choices in the power button options are 'Log off' and 'Lock'. I reset the start button options to default and restarted the computer by powering it off but there is no change. I lost the 'Shut Down'. 'Restart' and 'Switch User' options. How do I fix this other than restoring the operating system from backup or system restore?

Sorry if this seems obvious, but do you have more than one user account?

Yes, I have 5. Also one more question. How do I switch the order that the user accounts appear on the logon screen?

I don't think there's a way to change the order of accounts.

For your 'switch user' issue you might browse through the following:

Ctrl+Alt+Del and Start Menu - Add or Remove Switch User

Switch User Shortcut - Create
