Hello there,
I would to create a new group policy if computer is inactive for 5 minutes with choosen screen saver. I go to User Configuration -->> Administrative Templates -->> Control Panel -->> Display but I did not see many options such as screen saver options. Also, is there any option that I can pick for selected screen saver when the computer is locked.
