    how do you "lock" the pc in windows xp. i know this can be done after a screen saver but theres an other way which ive forgot. it says something like


    "this pc has been locked. only admin or an admin can unlock the pc".

    then a username and password login box below it.

    you sure? i thought it was somewhere in "ctrl,alt,del" but cant find it. and user accounts panel has nothing to do with it. so far as i can see.

    thanks anyway.

    Windows key + L is what I suppose you mean ....
    Providing your account requires a password, it works well.

    yes I'm sure, you can change the way you log on with password

    but perhaps you are meaning something different

    Ummmm ... mate, thats to set up accounts. Not to lock your pc ....
    Say if you wanna go for a quick shit and dont want auntie may seeing ya porn, hold the windows key and press L which 'locks' your pc taking you back to the log on screen.

    hey, theres a program called tweakxp, and i was flickin hrough it, and it has a section where it lets you lock your computer, so that to get back on you have to have a password, so you could use it if you want. hope this helped

    you can use this:

    right click desktop then new shortcut then cpy and paste:

    %windir%\System32\rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation

    then name it watever say "lock pc"
    then when you double cliick it will either bring up welcome screen or locked workstation- this depends what type logo on you have.

    you can use this shortcut for tasks so say lock pc at a certain time.

    i got this tip from m$'s tips area
