Lock a BitLocker drive without restarting your computer
How to relock a BitLocker drive without restarting your computer and without typing an administrator's password?
If you use BitLocker, you must be at least somewhat security conscious. It therefore follows that you have also wanted, from time to time, to lock a drive even when you weren't shutting down your computer. And how surprised you were that there wasn't a simple way to do that!
Now such a way exists by using Penteract Disguised-Keyboard Detector
. You will need to use an administrator's password once in order to install the service, and subsequently will be able to click on the app's icon in the system tray (the bottom right of the taskbar), and then lock the drive.
This is besides having your computer protected from malicious devices masquerading as innocent USB Flash Drives, of course...
