    Set Screensaver with Password Using Script


    Hi all, All our users do not sign on to a domain network so not able to use group policy to deploy to all machines.

    Objective:

    We have decided to force all the 2000 machines all over the island to set screensaver with password, logoff after 300 seconds. The password/login(if there is on local machine) is tied to a local user account.


    1)Some machines are with screensaver enabled already but with no password/login on local machine. Using script, what are the registry setting to check if any password/login already exist then set it to a default password and set screensavetimeout to '300' in the same script? Can this be done?


    2)Some machines are with screensaver enabled together with password/login on local machine. Using script, what are the registry settings to check if any password/login already existed? Script will not overwrite the password but set screensavetimeout to '300'. Can this be done?


    3)Any other alternative solutions to achieve the above objective? Solution must work for Win7, WIn8 and Win10.



    Appreciate assistance of any kind that bring us closer to solution.

    :)

    I would suggest you to try the following steps and check if that helps.

    • Go to the folder C:\Windows\System32 and sort by file type.
    • Look for the screensaver file type (.scr).
    • Find the file scrnsave.scr(you can choose any of the screensavers).
    • Right click and select send to>desktop (create shortcut). The shortcut on my attachment, but when i click on it my screen goes off and on and nothing else.Set Screensaver with Password Using Script :)

  3. screensaver versus no screensaver

    I must use a screensaver to help keep out pesky hands that like to look at porn. In other words, my pc is setup to go back to welcome screen and my login is set to use a password.
