Dear PC Doctor:
I work in a group office and sometimes have to deal with confidential files. If I have to step away from my desk, is there an easy way to secure my computer so people walking by can’t see what I’m working on? I don’t want to have to shut down my computer, as I’ll be right back.
Thank you, Celeste
Sure! Just before stepping away, use the “Lock Computer” keyboard command. Press the Windows key and L at the same time. If you normally log on to your computer with a password, when you return just type that it into the login screen and you’re back to work. If you don’t, it will bring up a screen where you can press CTRL-ALT-DELETE and then log back in with the user name and password you enter when Windows starts up.
Until next time… Happy Computing!
