- Right-click the desktop, select New, and then Shortcut.
- The Create Shortcut Wizard opens. In the text box, type the following: "rundll32.exe user32.dll, LockWorkStation" (note: the word 'LockWorkStation' is case sensitive), press the Next button.
- Enter a name for the shortcut, such as "Lock Workstation" or choose any other name you like, then press the Finish button.
- I would highly recommend that you drag the shortcut into the Quick Launch area if its enabled. (note: you may need to resize this area it if there are too many icons)
