If you are busy at work and you have to go away from your workstation every now and then, remembering Ctrl+Alt+Del to lock your workstation is not always feasible. How about setting Windows 2000 to lock it for you when you are away?


  1. Right click on the desktop.
  2. Click on properties.
  3. Click the Screen saver tab.
  4. Select one screen saver, specify the idle time and check the password protect.

    Next time you go away, your workstation will be locked.
