Lock your workstation!
Did you know there are keyboard shortcuts other than CRTL+ALT+DEL that you can use to lock your desktop? This will prevent people from walking up and snooping on your computer. You can save a keystroke by simultaneously pressing the Windows (Start) key + L. The Windows (Start) key has four wavy squares.
Or, to make things even easier, create a desktop shortcut.
- Right click any empty area of your desktop
- Click New
- Click Shortcut
- Type in the following: rundll32.exe user32.dll, LockWorkStation
- Click Next
- Name your shortcut
- Click Finish
Now it's as easy as a double click!
