    Display Log Off checkbox missing

    Locked

    by limelit ·

    Some of our installations of XP Pro are missing the Display Log Off checkbox as an option in the Advanced Start Menu Options list of the Customize Classic Start Menu. Could it have something to do with the way XP was initially installed or the way users are created? The inconsistency makes me worry there may be other quirks we just haven’t noticed yet. I’d rather not have to be checking for this and editing the registry to include the Log Off button on every computer we roll out.

      Point value changed by question poster. Apparently this is a change related to the installation of XP SP1. I haven’t been able to get a firm confirmation of this yet though.

      Please disregard the last comment, the presence/absence of the Display Log Off checkbox is occurring within XP SP1 installations as well.

      Not sure how the change was made on your computers but try this:

      If you have the Classic View enabled, right mouse click a blank space on your Taskbar and select Properties.

      When the Task Bar and Start Menu properties menu opens, click the Customize option next to the Classic Start Menu selection.

      Then, the “Customize Start Menu” dialogue will open. In the list of options look for the Display Logoff option. To display the logoff option, check the box next to that option.

      Hope thatanswers your question.

        sorry about that – I wasn’t paying attention. I thought the question was how to have “Logoff” displayed on the Start Menu.

        I just read the post again and realize that my response was incorrect.
