Shortcut to Lock Windows XP Workstation

If you need to step away from your workstation for a few minutes, you might want to lock it to prevent passersby from being able to access your data. To lock your Windows XP workstation, press the Windows key (i.e., the key with the Windows logo) + L. This trick doesn't work on Windows 2000, but it works on Windows Server 2003.
