Windows Shortcut - difference between XP Home/Pro

Anyone else got shortcuts that work fine in XP Pro but not in XP Home?

Windows Key + L in XP Pro will lock the work station but in XP Home doesn't do anything.

Why is that?

One of the frustrations of modern life no doubt!

Takes me to the Welcome screen in XP Home.

doing windows key + L in home is essentially locking your computer, it takes you to the windows welcome screen, and you need to enter your password (if you have one) to get back in

Just tried it on my PC(XP pro)and my daughters PC(XP home)logs them both off.

So disabling the welcome screen to make things more secure is that stops it from doing anything on XP Home. And ßéLâ is right, it does only seem to be on a domain that XP Pro will lock.

One of lifes many puzzles solved.
