Group Policy Show Clock, but Don't Change It

Posted on 2005-05-13

We're running Terminal Server 2000, and I want my users to be able to see the clock, but not change it. I know about the Change System Time, but it seems that this takes the clock completely away except for administrators. Is there anyway to keep the clock displayed, yet keep people from changing the time?

    By default, users can not change system time only administrator has the highest authority to do so. What is your exact requirement?

    Let us know.

    by: - this details how to put the clock on the task bar. The restrictions about allowing only administrators to change the system time remain in place but the clock is displayed.

    SystmProg, right, users can't change the system time, but they can't see the clock in their taskbar either. Only administrators can right now.

    CiaranDolan, is a registry hack really the only way to do this?

    Yup, I think so.
