windows 10 screensaver when no user is logged in


  • Does anybody have instructions or know how to setup a screensaver to run when no user is logged in.

    I know this was possible in windows 7 however doesnt seem to work in windows 10.

    I tried Windows photo viewer slideshow registry settings  however was only able to get to work whilst logged in.

    Moving the same registry settings to th default user did not work

    Any help greatly appreciated

    Running Windows 10 1511 enterprise

  • Hi GregT,

    Either in Windows 7 or Windows 10, that's impossible.

    Since this settings is per user level not machine level.

    Here is my trace:

    On Windows 7

    On Windows 10

    It's obvious is not controlled by machine level registry.

    Thus if there is no user session login, it cannot work.
