How to create a shortcut for locking your PC in Windows 7 – 10

Posted in How-to Guides, and Windows

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.
