The default action of the Start Menu's Shut down button is to turn
off your PC. If you want to use the button for another action, such as
restarting your PC, you click the arrow to the right of the Shut down
button and select an action from the drop-down menu.

To change your default, right-click the Start button and select Properties. On the Start Menu tab, click the "Power button action" drop-down menu and select which action you want to be the default. Then click OK, and OK again.
