Hi. Only in RDP sessions, and only on one computer (Windows 10 pro), I have lost the Shutdown and restart options from the Start Menu and also from the lock screen.

Things tried so far:
  • fully updated Windows 10   
  • login with a different user (same behavior)
  • sfc /scannow (did not fix)
  • dism /.... (did not fix)
  • a few gpedit.msc settings
  • a few registry settings (NoClose, ...)
  • Connected using Dameware (instead of RDP) and was able to see the options.
