    Windows logout shortcut?

    Does anyone know if it's possible to create a shortcut for the "Log out Windows" command? Especially in Windows XP where it takes three clicks.
    It would be even better if the shortcut could immediately log in some other account.

    You could also go to www.grc.com and use the wizmo utility.

    CuttThru: Hey, good point. I was unaware of that. I tested it and it actually isn't log off: it's the switch user, it leaves you logged in. One might also be leaning on his free hand or eating with it or something, so he'd rather just doubleclick the shortcut than use it to find the Win+L. Edit / Add: One might also have a keyboard not infected with the windows key.
    thesecretfire: I'll check that out, but I'd more likely do this without external progs.
