TIP: How to remove logout options

I never use more than the three basic logout / reboot / shut down. So the other four options for different versions of hibernate etc in the log out dialogue just annoys me.

Solution is simple:

Go into


and edit xfce4-session.xml (remember to right-click and open with your text editor)
Add any or all of the lines below. You need to log out and in again to see the effect.

  <property name="shutdown" type="empty">
    <property name="LockScreen" type="bool" value="false"/>
    <property name="ShowHibernate" type="bool" value="false"/>
    <property name="ShowSuspend" type="bool" value="false"/>
    <property name="ShowSwitchUser" type="bool" value="false"/>
    <property name="ShowHybridSleep" type="bool" value="false"/>

take a peak in xfconf in xfce4 setting manager , sure is good you can edit, also graphical is possible :slight_smile: that way you can change which WM you want to use also

Edit: Ok, found it. But can’t find that setting…
Edit again: Okay, found it, under “Settings Editor - xfce4-session - shutdown”.

Must be more people than me that can’t find it, because you’re the first time that has pointed me towards a GUI option.

Ik mean you can add this like
2020-01-12 08.56.57

Is possible those options isnt there but you can add to xfce4 session

And othzr thing to manually add in xfconf editor like

( As in new add window )

Te changes is also direct checkable no need to reboot or log in and out
