Desktop Lock is a Windows application that might come in handy if you want to make sure no unauthorized user will access your data. With its help, you can add a cover to your desktop and prevent anyone from using your applications or handing your documents while you're not around your PC.

The program gives you access to easy-to-configure settings, a comprehensive help manual, and a very intuitive interface. You will be able to schedule desktop lock-downs (for example, on a daily basis from 2 to 3PM), display a certain background image or play a music file while your PC is locked, and so much more. The app also features an option to automatically hide all running program windows as soon as your desktop is locked.

Another great thing is that you can define global hotkeys for immediately locking and unlocking your desktop.

A bad aspect is the fact that the application immediately shuts down after you lock your desktop. So, once you unlock your desktop, the program's window will no longer be displayed on your screen. Still, this isn't a big deal, especially if you don't plan on using the utility after unlocking your PC.

All in all, Desktop Lock is a helpful program that allows you to block unauthorized users from accessing the data within your computer. It's efficient, feature-rich, and affordable.
