Locking the screen in OS X

Monday, 23 December 2013

Control + Shift + Eject.

For some reason this shortcut never managed to commit itself to my memory. As a result I always have to trawl Google searching for ’OS X keyboard shortcut to lock screen’.

It is also advised in System Preferences > Security & Privacy you set Require password to be immediate.

In Windows you can [Windows Key + L] and in many flavours of Linux you can [Ctrl + Alt + L] or type something into the terminal.
