If you click on Start, then Shut Down you should get a box that asks What do you want the computer to do? In the box below that there should be an arrow to the right of that, if you click on it you should have a list of options which will include Log off, Shut Down, Restart, and Standby. Click on the one you want to appear in that rectangular box to the left of the arrow.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I don't know why, but I always use the TaskManager option. Rightclick on a blank part of the Taskbar, select TaskManager, and you have Shutdown options at the top of that.
Of course the TaskManager can also be brought up with the three-finger shuffle, Ctrl+Alt+Del.
That is the interesting thing about Windows, there are multiple ways of doing just about anything - whichever suits you I guess.

Cheers
