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.
- Click the Start button.
- Click your user account icon and click Lock.
Press the Windows key + L keyboard combination.
- Tap the Enter key to display the Lock screen.
- Click inside the password box.
- Type in your password and press Enter.
Tip: You can also press the Ctrl + Alt + Delete keyboard combination and then click Lock.
