I need help with a minor annoyance (not a real problem).

On every Windows 2000, XP, and 2003 system I have worked on, I could lock the workstation/server by doing a Control/Alt/Delete and then pressing 'Enter.'

On my new workstation (IBM/Lenovo ThinkCentre M52) when I hit Control/Alt/Delete my six options come up, but none (specifically 'Lock Workstation' are selected. I then have to click with my mouse to lock it, or I can hit an additional "Alt+Tab" to bring the window to focus, and then hit enter.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Hi adams0423...

Try pressing the Windows key and the L key instead.

WONDERFUL!! Thank you for your help! I thought I knew all of the Windows + shortcuts, but I didn't have this one. Does anyone have a comprehensive list?

Thanks again Wannabe1!
