Is there a way to lock the computer with a keyboard shortcut (instead of pressing ctrl+alt del first) or a command line argument like a shortuct to shutdown a computer (rundll.exe ______)?

You type in your User's Password, or if it doesn't have one, just click your user :)

I think! LOL.

Windows Key + L at the same time works just fine.

If you locked your computer; and don't have any password; no worries; it is not really locked :p Just click your user name and you will be back in Windows.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
