Lock access to your desktop

When you need to step away from your computer but you don't want to close the programs you have running, you'll want to lock the computer so that no one can access your programs. The easiest way to do this is to press the Windows key and the L key.


When you are ready to unlock the desktop, press Ctrl-Alt-Delete and enter your password. You are using a strong password, right?
