Hi All,

I would like to set all workstations to have a a default time limit of 30 mins when a screensaver (of my choosing) takes effect locking the workstation.

Is this possible through use of the GPO?

Thanks

from my experience, it is just the default .scr, it doesnt provide and texture capabilities, you can create your own .scr with custom settings and then apply that file
