    In my previous installation I was able to hold the power button which would bring up a dialog prompt that would ask me what to do. How do I get that function back?

    Using the tab key to hop between text fields highlights all buttons

    Hello,
    Whenever a dialog box pops up in Windows 10, if it contains text input fields and clickable buttons/radio buttons/checkboxes, pressing the tab key steps through every single item in the dialog box, which is very annoying and, to me, pointless. Do I recall that there might be a way to limit this behaviour so the tab key only highlights text input boxes, and not every single element? I can't find anything useful in Windows 10's Settings/Control Panel - am I missing something or is this not possible?

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

    Use the power button to turn off the computer at Welcome screen

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you want to turn off computer at the Welcome screen using the power button.



    Ideally, if no user has logged in to the computer, the computer will shut down by pressing the power button. However, I would suggest you to check the settings for power button. Refer the steps mentioned below and see if that helps:



    1. Press Windows key + X, and select
      Power Options.
    2. Click on Additional power settings.
    3. Now, click on Choose what power button does from the left pane.
    4. Click on Change settings that are currently unavailable.
    5. Select Shut down from the drop down for
      When I press the power button.


    If you are using Windows 10 Pro, you may also want to check the Group Policy Settings, refer the steps mentioned below:



    1. Press Windows key + R, to open
      Run
      dialog box.
    2. Type gpedit.msc and click on
      OK
      .
    3. Navigate to Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Power Management\Button Settings.
    4. On the right pane, double click on Select the Power button action (plugged in), click on
      Enabled and select Shutdown from the drop down for
      Power Button Action.
    5. Repeat step 4 for Select the Power button action (on battery).
    6. Restart the computer.


    If a user has logged in to the computer and then logs off from the computer, the computer will shut down by pressing the power button. However, if a user is logged in to the computer and locks the computer using the
    Windows key + L combination, the power button will not shutdown the computer. You will have to use the power button on the lock screen to shut down the computer.



    If you do not see the shutdown button, please refer the article Shutdown:
    Allow system to be shut down without having to log on
    .



    If the issue persists, I would suggest you to provide a feedback in the
    Feedback Hub. The Feedback hub lets you tell Microsoft
    about any problems you run in to while using Windows 10 and send suggestions to help us improve your Windows experience.

    Hi,

    Thank you for the update.

    To assist you better, I would like to know when exactly you had received this error. Are you able to boot the computer?

    The following steps detail how to change what happens when the power button is pressed.

    By default the power button will tell the computer to shut down, if it is not set to shut down, please follow the below steps.

    • In the Windows search box enter ‘Power Options’ and click on it when it appears in the list.
    • On the left of the window, click on the ‘Choose what power buttons do’ link
    • Under ‘When I press the power button’ choose the option you want to change it to
      Shut Down.
    • Click ‘Save changes’ to save the changes.

    If the issue persists, I suggest you to run the Power troubleshooter and check if it helps.

    Follow these steps to run Power troubleshooter:

    1. Type troubleshooting in the search bar.

    2. Select Troubleshooting.

    3. Select View all on the top left corner.

    4. Click on Power.

    5. Follow the on-screen instructions to run the troubleshooter.

    6. Check if issue persists.

    After performing the power troubleshooter, please perform the steps that has been provided above.
