Windows 10: How To Disable Slide to Shutdown

There is another way to turn off your PC - slide down. To call this function you need to create a special shortcut.

Right-click on the desktop and select "Create" -> "Shortcut". In the pop-up window that appears, insert the following line of code:

% windir% \ System32 \ SlideToShutDown.exe

A clickable icon will appear on the desktop that you can rename. Double-click on it and use the mouse to drag the window that appears down.
