Add Shut Down Option to Right Click Menu in Windows 8
In this day and age, talking about registry changes and modifications on XDA sounds like a flashback to the very, very distant past. After all, unless you are fully unlocked or at the very least interopunlocked, WP7 will not let you anywhere near close this magical pool of resources to make your device better. With the advent of Windows 8, people have been working hard throughout the net to make the new upcoming computer and tablet-friendly OS more usable and to customize it to everyone’s liking. If you are into modding your Windows 8 wielding laptop, here is a fun tweak that you can try.
XDA Forum Member SkyKOG posted a very easy guide to add a very important missing option to the right click context menu: the ability to shut down or reboot the device. This will actually save you from having to navigate yourself through the “Charms Bar.” As if the guide were not easy enough to follow, the dev was kind enough to upload a .reg file with the change already made for those of you who are not familiar with regedit or who are simply too lazy to actually do it yourselves.
We strongly recommend that you make a backup of your current registry, just in case you decide to go around messing with the computer’s internals without knowing what you are doing. This will definitely save you from having to go through a time consuming OS repair process should something go wrong. Please leave some feedback if you have any.
