To improve Windows Server I suggest you ...

Remove/hide Power button/icon from the Start Menu

Add a way, preferably via GPO, to remove/hide the Power Button from the Start Menu, or a way to move the Log Off action to the Power Button.

When you enable "Remove and prevent access to the Shut Down, Restart, Sleep..." in a GPO. and remove the disconnect action, the Power Button still remains, and just opens up a blank menu. And I don't want my users to just see a useless button in the Start Menu.

        I've had a support case with Microsoft Support about this, and they replied with the following: "The fact that the buttons appear in the start menu is a by design behavior".

        I'd also like to see this implemented as our main workload are RDSH servers and we dont want to confuse the users.
