    I haven't seen a way to add icons to items in the Win+X menu.

    If you like, items in the Start menu All Apps list will have icons on its items.

    Hello, *Smile

    Technically, that would be consider the "power menu" in the Win+X menu instead.

    You could use an option in the tutorials below that best fits your needs to remove Shut down and Sign out, but it will do so from all power menus and for all users.

    Add or Remove Sign out Option in Windows 10

    AND

    Disable Shut Down, Restart, Sleep, and Hibernate in Windows 10

    OR

    Allow or Prevent Users and Groups to Shut down System in Windows 10
