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!

Daystar's Tuesday Tech Tip is Windows + L keys. 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 only see your login screen, rather than the applications and files you are working on. This ensures that sensitive information is not view-able to others, as well as ensures no one uses your system without your knowledge. To unlock, simply enter your system password.Tech Tip 05`2018
