Disabl or Enable Lock WorkStation Functionality

This shortcut key locks the computer unit to protect it from illegal and unofficial use. By activating this shortcut key, no one will have the right to operate and activate our system until and unless exact and right password gets entered into the computer.

But you can disable / enable this feature, whenever you want to! Users have to do a manual registry hack which is quite and rather simple. Firstly, in the start menu, you just have to type in regedit.exe and than browse the key to the following address bar:
HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesSystem. After this, user has to generate a new-fangled 32-bit DWORD value DisableLockWorkstation. If you want to disable it then give it a value of 1. If you want to enable it then give it a value of 0. User will see that the change is instantaneous and abrupt.

Also through download registry hack, we can disable / enable this action. After downloading, user just has to open that particular file and choose the option Enable or Disable script, hence the choice will totally depend upon the user that what kind of action they want to perform for their systems.

There are some cases that when you disable this feature then the option to lock this computer does not show on the screen. But through local group plan editor, we can get a solution! Firstly, user has to open local group policy editor.  Navigating to this folder on the left side: User ConfigurationAdministrative TemplatesSystemCtrl+Alt+Del Options, user double clicks on the option Remove Lock Computer and than finally chooses dot Not Configured or Disabled to enable Lock Computer feature. Click Apply and OK and close the local group policy editor section in order to have this option to come back again on the screen and to perform the function properly..
