Secure your workstation with a quick Windows Shortcut

Security is everyone's responsibility. And one of the simplest ways to secure your workstation is to lock it up when it's not in use. A quick Windows shortcut can lock your PC or laptop in seconds!

Tuesday Tech Tip

Daystar's Tuesday Tech Tip helps you secure your workstation with two simple keys. Simply press the Windows + L keys at the same time. Use this combination every time you step away from your workstation... whether it's for an afternoon meeting or a quick trip to the water cooler. It's a fast and easy way to secure your systems from unauthorized access.

Windows + L will lock your screen so that people walking by can only see your login screen, rather than the applications and files you are working on. This ensures that sensitive information is not viewable to others, as well as ensures no one uses your system without your knowledge.

To unlock, you simply enter your system password and your desktop appears.
