  • Hi Hemanth,

    Thanks for your post.

    You could run gpedit and check the group policys below.

    User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Control Panel -> Personalization ->“Screen Saver Timeout”

    Specifies how much user idle time must elapse before the screen saver is launched. When configured, this idle time can be set from a minimum of 1 second to a maximum of 86400 seconds, or 24 hours. If set to zero, the screen saver will not launch.

    User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Control Panel -> Personalization  ->Force Specific Screen Saver

     User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Control Panel -> Personalization ->“Prevent Changing Screen Saver”

    And also enable the policy "enbale screen saver"
