Where in GPO do I control non-admins to have the option to reset their password when they select Ctrl+Alt+End when connected to terminal server?

I have the option to reset my password (Admin) non-admins do not. Assume this is controlled in GRO

Thanks

Hi,

I am not pretty sure about the settings in Terminal server. But in normal scenario you can control the permission of users to change the password by editing below GPO.

1. Click the Group Policy object (GPO) that you want to work with, and then click Edit.
2. Expand the GPO->expand User Configuration->expand Administrative Templates-> and then expand System.
3. Click Ctrl+Alt+Del Options.
4. Here you can find the GPO 'Remove Change Password'. If this policy is enabled users won't be able to
change the password.
5. Disable the policy and see if this helps you.

Thanks that worked -

I changed Comp->Policies->AdminTemp->WinComponents->RemoteDesktopServices->RemoteDestktopSessionHost->RemoteSessionEnv->RemoveWindowsSecurityItemfromStartMenu "Disabled"

"Specifies whether to remove the Windows Security item from the Settings menu on Remote Desktop clients. You can use this setting to prevent inexperienced users from logging off from Remote Desktop Services inadvertently.

If the status is set to Enabled, Windows Security does not appear in Settings on the Start menu. As a result, users must type a security attention sequence, such as CTRL+ALT+END, to open the Windows Security dialog box on the client computer.

If the status is set to Disabled or Not Configured, Windows Security remains in the Settings menu."
