How to control the Photo screensaver settings via GPO?

    Question

  • We want to use photo and slideshow screensaver on XP/win7.  I am looking for a way to manage its settings via GPO.

    for speed,location, and shuffle.

    I know these will have to be managed seperatly as the scr is now different.  will i need a custom adm file or is there one already i am just not having luck locating?

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    Please try to enable the following settings to test:

    [User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\Personalization]
    -Enable screen saver
    -Force specific screen saver
    -Screen saver timeout

    Note, you may need deploy the scr file to local clients. Computer Startup script or GPP->Files extension is convenient to deploy files. If you need more help, please let us know.

    Thanks.

  • Hi.

    You can find some settings under User Configuration/Administrative templates/Control panel/Display/
    Here you will find a setting called Screen saver and Screen saver timeout.
    You could also use preferences to set the neceserary registry keys to achive this.
    Hopes this helps.
