Quickly Lock Your Mac

You can lock your Mac with a quick menu choice or keyboard shortcut. Starting with High Sierra, if you choose the Apple menu you will see Lock Screen as an option. The keyboard shortcut is Control+Command+Q. This is handy if you need to step away from your desk at a moment’s notice.

    Great tip. I use a hot corner for this, which I find much quicker.

    Tom: Unlock as you do normally, after your Mac sleeps or you shut the lid, etc.

    Just perfect. I kept thinking of this option, but never took the time to look for it. Thanks Gary.
