How do I reduce the Windows Security or Log Off page list to only list one thing - "Log Off" - in Windows 7? I remember seeing the list somewhere - Registry maybe - a comma delineated list. I don't kow if that was the place to change it or only the list for the registry key that was generated through some other method from the control panel. I only want it to list log off, not change password, switch user or the other possibilities. I've seen it this way on some computers. That way I can simply hit Control Alt Delete and then Return to quickly go to the page that shows the other users like Administrator. Thank you.

If your goal is to quickly get to the page to log in a different user, try Win+L. – Ben Voigt Oct 15 '13 at 15:06

You can use group policy to remove the commands for shutting down and/or rebooting...

Specifically check out the User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Start Menu and Taskbar > Remove and prevent access to the Shut Down, Restart, Sleep, and Hibernate commands policy.

I don't believe there's a way to prevent the Change Password from showing up, but you can deny a user's ability to change their own password via the user account manager.
