Press the Windows logo on the bottom row of your keyboard and touch the letter L. This is absolutely the fastest and easiest way, and also works in Win7 and Win8 . The logo key has many such functions, searchable online as "keyboard shortcuts", which can vary between the different OS versions.
Thanks! I remember when Word and WordPerfect used to have little strips of paper with all the shortcuts on them, but I need to just learn them by memory now. Appreciate the help.
