I have a pool of ~40 terminals running Windows Embedded POSReady (basically, a modified Windows XP). My problem is that these computers requires a password after exiting the screensaver.

The objective is to disable this behavior via the command line (batch), for easier deployment. I know how to disable this for one user (the current user) :

Reg add "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop" /v ScreenSaverIsSecure /t REG_SZ /d 0 /f

But I wanted to know if it is possible to disable it for all users of the computer.

  • Could this be used a as a startup script for all users. That would help i assume. – pulsarjune Oct 10 '14 at 12:33
  • Yeah but to set this startup script I have to log in all user accounts, which is not applicable – Epoc Oct 31 '14 at 13:45
  • Hope this helps Assign computer startup scripts – pulsarjune Oct 31 '14 at 17:26
