When full screen is selected you should see a padlock in the corner and click on that.

That was only in WMP 10.
@randycmj98 I see you have posted this on another Windows support site. It seems, after some research, the feature to 'lock' the WMP screen in party mode has been removed from WMP 12. I have looked through all of the WMP options, cannot find anything to do with 'locking' the screen.

Don't give up, you could find a different player that can do the job for you
Or find a program that can lock the screen as an application
Just let me do some hunting on the web

Hmm, that didn't take long
I have found this program: Matrix Screen Locker - Secure Desktop Lock

When you click on its icon in the system tray, it locks the screen in a matrix style animation. You enter a password to unlock it.
Some examples can be found on Youtube.
