If like me, you find yourself in a situation where you need to quickly lock your screen, and the Win+L keyboard shortcut isn’t an option – in this case the SteelSeries keyboard I’m using has its own logo-key (pictured below) instead of the traditional Windows key and using the Win+L shortcut doesn’t work, then there’s a very simple workaround available.
Simply, right-click wherever you want to create the shortcut, Right-click > New > Shortcut. Enter the following text into the shortcut text box:
rundll32.exe user32.dll, LockWorkStation
And finally, just rename the shortcut to whatever you please, in this case I named it LockMe, click Finish and you’re done.
