Screen Saver / Secure Display Lock

  • Has anyone figured out a way to deploy a secure screen lock without joining the WES7 to the domain? Is there another easier solution?  We are piloting some 3290 TCs which are working well but I just encountered this challenge today (not sure why it was just today).  This is in a healthcare environment so we need there to be an easy way for the users to blank the screen and lock it.

  • Hi,

    You can do it with Local Group policy settings.

    Login with Admin acc.,Disable Write filter, reboot.

    Login again with admn acc., start - run - gpedit.msc.

    Under Computer or User part of policy go to Administrative templates - Control Panel - Personalization - There are Screen saver settings - Edit them...

    Then Enable write filter - reboot - and that's it.
