I am running Win 7 pro and the "Lock" option is under "Shut Down" -> Lock. Will this reg edit work for this as well?

Hello Dan,

This tutorial will only add "Lock Computer" to your desktop context menu that will lock your computer when used.

It does the same thing as the Lock in the Start Menu, but it doesn't affect anything in your Start Menu power menu.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
