Windows Desktop Lock is a small utility that will help you to lock your computer during your absence. An open source program allows you to lock your computer rather than shut down it using the software's interface, yet it's incredibly simple. It is impossible for anyone else to change or interfere with your other programs while you are away.

In any case, the program won't work very well for anyone who has no experience. For example, you can use Windows Desktop Lock to protect your computer from children. Since there is a low level of protection with this utility, it is not suited to better protection. By entering your password twice while clicking the Lock this PC button, the computer's desktop is replaced by a gray screen, which displays a password field and a button to cancel the lock, again. Nevertheless, you can conveniently navigate the desktop, all programs, and more by pressing such keyboard shortcuts as Ctrl + Alt + Del, Alt+Tab, Windows + Tab, Windows + D, or just a button from Windows. This means that anyone with more advanced knowledge of this can still bypass it. The third version of Windows Desktop Lock will be more stable and repair all of these vulnerabilities.A new server will be able to start no later than this week.
