    How to get Power button on Windows 8 Taskbar

    Hello. I need a tip for some customization process on Windows 8 taskbar, hope this is right section. Now as Windows 8 is about to launch, i started using Customer Preview to learn it before i go for final version. Now during this period i found that we dont have Start menu by default on our desktop (i know it is on Metro). So, if we need to use power key or shutdown/restart, i need to go to metro every time. But i have seen few PCs in some office having a power icon on their taskbar. It was surprising for me. I dont know how they did but i want to get it on my desktop as well. So could you guys please let me know how can i get the power button on my W8 taskbar ? Thanks for you helps.

    Sorry guys, i forget to mention how to use it. You just need to extract the files to a folder in any drive. Double click Jump Control.exe and pin it to taskbar. Thats it. It won requires any installation. Whenever you want the power options, just do a single click on its taskbar icon and get shut down, restart, etc options right away.
