Tip & How-To about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows
Microsoft Windows has a built -in feature to lock the desktop when you neeed to get up and leave your desk for that coffee or errand. Simply click START, and then Shutdown, and depending on the verison (Windows XP, Vista or Seven), click the appropriate button to lock your desktop.
However, there is a MUCH faster way. For all versions of Windows mentioned above, simply press the Windows Key and the L button on your keyboard, and viola, your desktop is locked!
