Keyboard Shortcut to Lock Screen


New KM user here and I'm hoping to use a quick keystroke to Lock Screen. Is this possible? I can't see anything in the pre-built macros that will help me achieve this.

I'd appreciate any advice.


How do you normally do this manually?

You could use Put Computer to Sleep action.


Hey Dáithí,

Using the built-in System method:

Using Keyboard Maestro's Sleep Screen action:


You have to set the screen up to lock when it sleeps at the system level though. (See the OS X Daily page for instructions.)
