Hope this helps,

I have home premium x64 and there is a switch user option on the shutdown button options which works just fine.

Hello Kado,

Correct, the Windows 7 Home Basic, Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise editions all have this in Start Menu as well. This is just so that someone can have a separate shortcut to use instead. For example, to pin it to the taskbar, or use on the desktop.

Mmm yes I see your point. If home premium doesn't have tsdiscon I wonder how it does it and whether one could tap into that to do something similar.

You can do the "Before" section in the tutorial to download a copy of the tsdiscon.exe file to use in Windows 7 Basic or Home Edition for the shortcut to work afterwards.

Thanks for the info Brink. I think for the present I will just stick with the three click method. I don't do it that often.
