Disable/Enable Lock Workstation




Disable/Enable Lock Workstation Functionality (Windows + L)


Using the Windows+L keys together will lock your workstation running Windows 7, XP or Vista. Did you realize that you can also disable this function?



Follow the steps below to accomplish the task:

1. Click Start--> Type REGEDIT in search



2. In the registry editor navigate to the below key.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System



3. On the right-hand side, create a new DWORD 32-bit value named DisableLockWorkstation and give it one of these values:

1 – Disable Lock Workstation

0 – Enable Lock Workstation



The changes should be immediate, no need to restart the machine.
