    Click the padlock that appears on your Menu Bar, then select "Lock Screen"
    I'm not sure what you mean by "lock it on websites".

    Launch the Keychain Access app in your /Applications/Utilities folder, then go to Preferences > General > Show Status in Menu Bar (check). However, that will enable you to lock your computer, but not the way you're talking about. With your computer locked, nothing could be seen or clicked until you enter your password to unlock it.
