Updating xp like vista
The sad fact is Windows Vista will be shipping with screensavers without the options to be configured, however they were originally designed to be customizable.Stephen Coy, the designer of these screensavers, tells me this feature might be available after Vista ships, perhaps in the form of a powertoy or service pack?Please do not use this in a work environment as it may cause instabilities. To return the screensavers to their original state, you would simply delete the registry values under the key related to the screensaver.This page describes the configuration and properties of a correctly set-up and working Windows XP – Windows Vista dual-boot.

On Windows 7, that setting is in the Start menu, a place users expect it to be. (In fairness, Microsoft added a power icon to the Start screen in Windows 8.1.) Now that the Start menu's back on Windows 10, the shutdown setting is right back where it belongs and as easy to access as in Windows 7.
