Configure windows screensaver through the registry
Posted on 2006-11-29
I am configuring my logon script to change the registry properties of the user’s screensaver. I want to set it up so that it automatically set the users screensaver and disable the option for him to change it.
My problem is that when I set the screensaver path in the registry, it does not want to accept a full path like c:\windows\system32\screen.scr
But when I change it to say only screen.scr, then it accepts it.
My registry file looks like this:
I have to set line 5 to "SCRNSAVE.EXE"="screen.scr" for it to actually amend the property. If I use the full path it ignores the command and just leaves the property as is.
I am writing this registry script for Windows XP and will include it in my logon script under Exchange 2003
Thank you for your time
