Sorry, not sure I understand.  Can you please clarify?

If you want to lock the workstation, Windows key + L will lock it.

If it helps clarify, the "Windows Key" is the key with the Microsoft flag logo - bottom row, 2nd or 3rd key in from the left (depending on the keyboard).

You can also press Ctrl+Alt+Del, then click on "Lock This Computer"
