You can change which icon displays in the Start menu by right-clicking on any blank space within the start menu, selecting properties, and the prompt is right there.

If the above method did not workout for you. You might want to try this.

Power Button - Start Menu

Open up your control panel. Navigate to "Power Options". On your preferred power plan, click on "Change plan settings". Then click on "Advanced power settings".

Now navigate to "Power buttons & lid". Click on "Power button action". Change the setting to "Shutdown". Click apply then Ok.

Make sure you also hit apply before exiting the screen. It will not work if you forget to hit it.

Hope this helps,
