Windows 7 Shut down button

Specs: Win 7
In all other operating systems I've used that shut down
from the software, shutting down is a two-click process.
In general, first you tell the OS to shut down, then you
either confirm that that was what you really intended, or
cancel the operation. (Or choose another alternative.)

In Windows 7 you click the "Shut down" button and
you're stuck, whether you meant to click it or not.

Is there an easy way to fail-safe the Shut down button
so that it can't do anything without confirmation?

Enabling ShutdownReasonUI is probably the closest you're going to get.

People have been asking why MS asked that silly question for decades.

I'd bet after a few times you'll figure out not to make that mistake again.

If you want you can change it to another choice like hibernate or sleep.
