Windows Vista lock
« on: February 18, 2010, 01:44:12 pm »
Ok now how on EARTH do I figure out how to lock my computer on Windows Vista home premium....like password protected???
I click the little padlock symbol on my start menu next to the power button and it goes to a screen with my name under a little logo but it doesn't actually lock it. All you have to do is click the icon with my name and it goes back to the desktop. I want to put a password on it so nobody but myself can access it unless I give them the PW.

You should be able to set it, in your control panel.  Start > Control Panel > User Accounts > Click on your account and change or set a password.  I have XP but it has to be similar, well should be anyway.

Control Panel>User Accounts

There should be an option there to add a password to your account.

:EDIT: ATL beat me to it.  It's the same in Vista and Windows 7 as well.

Also, "WINKEY + L" is a shortcut to lock the computer, password or not, it will bring you to a "login prompt" if you were curious.

WIN+D = desktop
WIN+E = explorer

These are also common...
