Changing the default screen saver for all users...
Posted on 2002-06-12
We're trying to change the default screen saver for all users from the normal Windows Xp screen saver to a custom, company based one.
GPEDIT.msc has this option, but if you do it this way, it forces you to use our screen saver, and does not let the user change it at all. This won't do.
I have a specialized company .theme I've saved, but gpedit doesn't seem to let you specify a .theme, only a .msstyle or whatever. Can a .msstyle specify screen saver default and other such options? If so, point me to help on how to make my own .msstyle file and we'll call it just as good. :) (Please note that if it works the same way as the screen saver, IE, locks you out from changing the theme to something else, it won't work.)
This has to work for all user accounts, even those created *after* I change the screen saver.. IE, it has to be the hard coded default. I hope I'm explaining this right...
