Locking and Unlocking your Office Computer

Locking - Step 1:

On your keyboard, hold down both the Ctrl key and the Alt key at the same time.

While holding both keys, press and release the Delete key.


Locking - Step 2:

If performed correctly, a Windows Security window will appear. Click the Lock Workstation button.


Unlocking - Step 1:

At this point, your computer is locked. While your computer is locked, no one will be able to access it without entering your password.
