Add/Hide ‘Hibernate’ to Windows 10 Shutdown Options

New operating system, new UI and little confusion in accessing your favorite options is all common for an average computer user after the upgrade. Windows 10 has brought significant changes to the user interface compared to Windows 8.1. Every setting has been brought under the right hood and it created some confusion in accessing even familiar options.

If you have recently upgraded to Windows 10 and have been looking to add more control to your Shutdown options in Start menu, this tutorial is for you.

The Shutdown button in Start menu will have only three options, Shutdown, Restart and Sleep. Not only we can add the Hibernate option, but also we can remove it along with the other power preset options with some limitations (Shutdown and Restart cannot be removed). The tutorial is a bidirectional guide and hope you would find it useful.

Step 1: Click on Start button > Settings.


Step 2: Click on System.

Step 3: Scroll down to Power & Sleep settings > click on Additional power settings.


Step 4: Click on ‘Choose what power buttons do


Step 5: Click on ‘Change settings that are currently unavailable’. This will enable the grayed out options in the bottom.


Step 6: Under Shutdown settings, check the options that you wanted to be displayed on shutdown button.


That’s it! You’ve now successfully added/removed the hibernate button to your shutdown button options.
