Hello,
I have a steam link that I use to stream games to my bedroom TV from my Windows 10 HTPC which is setup in my living room. Each time I have to unlock the PC to be able to stream via steam link. I was wondering if there is any free application that I can use to lock specific applications like Chome, Windows Explorer etc. so that I can leave the PC unlocked but specific apps locked. I tried searching the internet but I am worried about malware, viruses etc.

Are you letting that PC sleep? That will cause that. Prompt for password after screen saver will cause that too.
