Re: Enable shutdown button on rdp session!

Posted: 01-17-2009, 06:33 AM

I've found a way to emulate the 'Shut Down' button in an RDP session:

Basically it involves a shortcut to some very simple VB code whic
brings up the standard 'Shut Down Windows' Dialog Box.

So here's the VB Code which needs to be copied to a new.vbs file:

Code
-------------------
Dim Shell
Set Shell = WScript.CreateObject ("Shell.Application")
Shell.ShutdownWindows

-------------------

After this you just need to create a shortcut to this in the start men
and assign the standard 'Shutdown' icon to it! What you end up with i
this:

Once you click on the icon the standard 'Shut Down Windows' dialo
appears as if you were doing it from a non-RDP session!

I haven't been able to find a way to move the icon any lower in th
start menu (although this is apparently possible when using the XP styl
start menu as opposed to the classic style I'm using.

So all-in-all, pretty easy & effective! Sure it's on the wrong end o
the start menu, but hey, at least the functionality and ease of use ar
still there!

The only downside I can think of is that depending on your user setu
you might get duplicate shutdown icons.

Enjoy!
