As supplied, Windows ME doesn't have a control to put it back. But TWEAKUI has a "show on desktop" section in which you can turn it back on.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
