The Many Ways to Unlock Windows 8

With many things from Microsoft, there are a myriad of ways to do the same thing and this goes for unlocking a Windows 8 computer.

Essentially, you have the following options from the lock screen:

  1. Hit the space bar on the keyboard,
  2. Hit Enter on the keyboard,
  3. Click the primary button on the mouse (the left button if you are right handed or right button if left handed),
  4. Scroll down on the mouse wheel,
  5. Hold down the primary button on the mouse and drag the mouse cursor up the screen,
  6. Swipe your finger upwards (if using a touchscreen).

You’re really spoilt for choice 🙂
