    "There are currently no power options available" error under START menu


    Today I noticed that I no longer have the ability to shut down or restart my computer using the START menu. When I click on the Power icon, it says "There are currently no power options available". Ctrl+Alt+Del window is also missing these functions. I am on Win 10 Home edition. I am not sure if any system changes were made right before this occurred. I have not restarted the computer in a while. I checked on the status of updates and made sure everything was up to date. The issue is still there after all the updates were installed and the computer was restarted.

    :)

    1709 Creators update - shutdown options missing - "there are currently no power options available"

    Hi Jacob,

    The error there are currently no power options available happens if the
    Shut down the system Policy isn't configured correctly. We suggest following these steps to fix it:

    • Press the Windows key and R at the same time to open the Run dialog box.
    • Type secpol.msc and click OK to open the
      Local Security Policy
      window.
    • Expand Security Settings.
    • Expand Local Policies.
    • Click User Rights Assignment.
    • Double-click Shut down the system from the right pane to open it's properties.
    • In the pop-up window, click Add User or Group, type the full user name or group name for the affected users, then click
      Add.
    • Click OK to close the window.
    • Restart the computer.

    Let us know if the power options in the Start menu are restored after following these steps.

    Windows 10 : There are currently no power options available

    I currently have two users here in the office with Windows 10: There are currently no power options available error.

    I have tried multiple things and none seem to work. Below are the troubleshooting steps i have done so far.

    • Changed power plan (both to a different preset and to a new custom plan).
    • Ran gpedit.msc and ensured User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Start Menu and Taskbar was not enabled.
    • Ran regedit and created a registry value for NoClose with the value 0 at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer.
    • Ran sfc /scannow from an admin command prompt; no issues found.
    • Ran powercfg –restoredefaultschemes from an admin command prompt.
    • Ran Policy Editor and located the remove shut down. Enabled it and disabled it. Did not work
    • System restored it back before the problem started to happen but still getting same result.
    • Took the surface pro tablet off from the domain and logged in as a local administrator. Still got the same result even on a workgroup with administrator logged in.
    • Ran Any current updates, No updates were available.
    • Ran the laptop in safe mode and still same issue, also ran sfc /scanow and still did not find any issues.
    • Ran troubleshoot power options. Did not find any errors.

    One user is using a brand new Microsoft windows 10 surface pro, the other user is using windows 10 pro dell laptop.

    There have no hardware changes to any of the laptops and there have been no installation of any other software.

    The power options out of nowhere just didn't show anymore.

    The only workaround is pushing control+alt+del.
