Need to force users to use 1024 x 768

I am looking to force a number of users to use a screen resolution of 1024 x 768, and stop them from changing it.

There are a number of users operating PC's on remote sites. Their PC's are connected to the network, but users log on locally (usually with a shared local login) and then connect to the network if required using Citrix. The problem is that the users keep changing the resolutions and when they move from one pc to another and citrix re-opens the last session at the previous resolution it is  quite often either too large or too small.

Users don't log into the domain as they all have roaming profiles for when they are in head office.

Any suggestions?

Go to Start -> Run -> gpedit.msc

Go to User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Control Panel -> Display

And simply disable the "Display" in Control Panel ... This way nobody is able to change the resolution anymore

Hi boppaluccio1,

carefull with that local policy - once you set that and if you set those options it hits every user and even if your admin you will have to change the policy before you can edit the display settings again.... if the users have the know how they can also change it...

Cheers!
