I just got my Microsoft Surface Tablet. So far it rocks, but I would like to be able to get to the main screen that shows date/time and background image (or, the "Lock Screen"). Thus far I have only been able to get there by hitting the power button twice. Is there a way to get there without hitting the power button?
This screen is called the "Lock Screen". It is shown when your computer is locked.
To lock your computer, you can:
You can customize your lock screen through the "Personalize" settings page.
First activate the "Settings" Charm and choose "Change PC Settings":
Then select the "Personalize" page:
What is called the Lock Screen is available using the profile icon in the top right corner of the Start screen. Simply click it and click "Lock":
Alternatively, if you have a keyboard attached, Windows+L will end in the same result.
