I use this several times a day, at work and home. I'm a stickler about leaving my computer unlocked - a good security measure to get in the habit of.

  1. Right click an empty area of your desktop, choose New/Shortcut and enter this line as the command line:

    Code:
    rundll32.exe user32.dll, LockWorkStation
    Lock Shortcut for WindowsXP Create

  2. Click Next. Name the shortcut whatever you prefer and click Finish.

    Lock Shortcut for WindowsXP Name-1

  3. Now, let's change the icon. Right-click the shortcut and go to Properties/Shortcut/Change Icon.

    Lock Shortcut for WindowsXP Properties-1

    In the text box, "Look for icons in this file", type:
    Code:
    %SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll
    Lock Shortcut for WindowsXP Shell32

  4. Click Apply, OK - you're all done.

To make it even quicker, I place this shortcut in my Quick Launch bar so that's it's a one-click operation.

Pressing the Window's key + the L key works too.
