IS there anyway I can remove the Shutdown button from Windows Server and replace it with Restart button? I know how to disable/remove Shutdown button through Local Computer policy but I don't know how to replace it with Restart button
Why not disable shutdown the Shutdown button and use a shortcut on your desktop or quicklaunch bar to restart?
Right-click on your desktop and select New> Shortcut
In the Type the location of the item: textbox enter %windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -r
The -r parameter is used to restart the computer.
The following two parameters can be used with -r: -f Forces running applications to close without warning. -t xx Set timeout for restart to xx seconds.
The following command would reboot the computer instantly. %windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -r -f -t 00
Click the Next > button and Name your shortcut.
Hope this helps.
