Hi folks -

Most of the tutorials that I can find mention both the Lock Screen and Login Screen.
I just want to lock the computer so I just see the login screen.

Thanks.

That is weird.

I used the Windows 10 GP to do it and it didn't work the first time.
All I did was repeat the same procedure and now it works.

Thanks, Shawn.
