The quickest way to lock your computer screen is to just use the Win+L keyboard shortcut. But some people prefer to use the mouse to lock the workstation, however, or would just like to have both options available. Hereís how to easily create a shortcut to lock Windows Vista, 7, 8 or even Windows XP as well.
Right-click wherever you want to create the shortcut, choose New, and then Shortcut.
Enter the following text into the shortcut textbox. Note that the screen will look different if using Windows XP, but the same text should work.
rundll32.exe user32.dll, LockWorkStation
Enter a name for the shortcut, and then click Finish. Thatís all there is to it.
