Windows 2012 Server RDP & Xenapp questions

I am implementing a new 2012 server running Citrix Xenapp 7.5. I am not sure if these questions I have are specific to Citrix or apply to RDP as well. When I log on with a regular user, the only option to leave is disconnect. I would like the user to be able to sign out but not shutdown or restart. Also the user is not able to right click the Windows Logo Start menu. Are these the default settings or can they be changed?

Thanks,

I don't have a logoff option. Only a disconnect but that leaves the session open and files open. I want to logoff but don't get that option. They changed the wording to sign out in windows 2012 but I don't get that option as a iser

you will have to modify the default 'user' permissions.
Check the msdn link for the permission grid
