This is the customizable Windows 8 lock screen. It appears when you power on your PC or resume from sleep. (You can also lock the screen manually by pressing Windows key+L.
If you have a touch screen or a trackpad, you can swipe this screen up with a flick of your finger and get back to work.. If you are using a mouse and keyboard, you can imitate that gesture by swiping the mouse pointer up from the bottom of the display.
But there are two easier ways:
- Double-click anywhere on the lock screen, OR
- Just press Enter.
In either case, you're in. The lock screen slides up, allowing you to enter your password or PIN and then get to work.
