Windows 10 Lock Screen

If you’re working in a public place, such as at your office or at the library, it’s a good idea to lock your computer when you leave it unattended. This prevents anyone else from being able to access your accounts or view/change any your files. Once your computer is locked, anyone who attempts to use it will first need to enter in your account password.

To Lock Your Computer

  1. Click the Start button.
  2. Click your user account icon and click Lock.
