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


    If you don't plan to use your PC for a while, then you could fast startup.

    Each group in Windows has its own default rights and permissions. When a user is a member of a group, the user will be assigned the rights and permissions of the group.

    Default Users and Groups Allowed to Shut Down the Computer:
    • On a Local Computer or Workstation (ex: home computer): Administrators, Backup Operators, Users
    • On a Server: Administrators, Backup Operators
    • On Domain: Administrators, Backup Operators, Server Operators, Print Operators

    Show Local users and Groups


    Hello Frank, and welcome to Ten Forums. Allow or Prevent Users and Groups to Shut down System in Windows 10 :)

    If you have the Windows 10 Home edition, then it will not have Local Users and Groups (lusrmgr.msc) included in it. It's only available in the Pro and Enterprise editions instead.

    If you like, you could use step 3 in OPTION THREE of the tutorial below list users in a group.

  3. Windows 10 error: "Windows couldn't connect to the Group Policy Client service. Please consult your system administrator"

    Hi Rico,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing with accessing the operating system.

    Do let us know the following to assist you better:

    • Which edition of Windows Operating System are you using?
    • What all the troubleshooting steps have you performed?
    • Have you installed all the pending updates on your Operating System?
    • Have you installed any third-party anti-virus software on your system?

    I suggest you to try few of the below troubleshooting steps and check if it helps.

    I suggest you to Stop the Group Policy service, restart and set it to Automatic.

    Group Policy Client service, this service is responsible for applying settings configured by administrators for the computers and users through the Group Policy component. If the service
    is disabled the settings will be applied and applications and components will not be manageable through Group Policy.

    Step 1: Stop the Group Policy Client service.

    • Press Windows Key + R on the keyboard and type
      services.msc
      , Services window gets opened.
    • Search for Group Policy Client service, right click on it and click on
      Stop.
    • Restart the computer.

    Step 2: Start the service and set it to automatic:

    • Press Windows Key + R on the keyboard and type
      services.msc
      , Services window gets opened.
    • Search for Group Policy Client service, right click on it and click on
      Properties.
    • Start the service, set
      Startup type to Automatic.

    Hope it helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of this issue for further assistance.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  6. Allow the second user to access particular programs

    Hi Marisa,

    It depends on the Windows build because if you use Windows 10 Home build, Microsoft doesn’t provide an option to give access to the particular programs. However if you use Windows 10 Pro build, it is possible to give access to the particular applications.

    Follow the steps:

    Go to the Group Policy window - scroll down to User Configuration - Administrative Templates - System

    On the right pane, find the settings for Run only specific Windows applications and double click on it to find Properties.

    Tap on the Enabled, then click on the Show.

    When you are in the Show Contents window, tap each line in the list and type in the name of the executable you want users to be able to run.

    Once done, click on ok.
