 I am sorry I dont understand the whole question you would like to turn off the settings for the whole computer or just certain programs? I have limited knowledge of 3.11 but should be able to help with 95 if I know exactly what you are asking...

In 3.11 you could set up your desktop to the way you would like it and save your settings by selecting save setting on exit. Then if you took this option off and messed up your desk top then went out and back in it would be as you saved it. Know in 95 if I have say explorer open when I exit it is there when I go back in, but I want it to return to a predetermined look.

If i understand it correctly you want to use the same desktop settings every time you reboot, without changes.

If thats the case, first make sure that you have made all your customized settings for the desktop. Second find user.dat and change user.dat in user.man. This extension change makes the desktop mandatory, any changes in a session will not be saved, and you'll get same desktop over and over again.

S.A.P.

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

It seems to be a lot easier in 3.11 but this will solve my problem I presume if I change it back to User.dat I can change my desktop again.

If you are going to do this you first have to go into the passwords icon in control panel and set user profies up to retain settings for a single user.

Run Poledit (Policy Editor - can be installed from W95 CD @ \Admin\Apptools\Poledit with Add Software):

    Open Registry -  Local User - Shell - Restrictions - Don't save settings at exit
