How do I configure a default Screen Saver if no one logs on?

A. This is accomplished using the registry editor:

  1. Start the registry editor (regedit.exe)
  2. Move to the HKEY_USERS\DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop
  3. Double Click ScreenSaveActive and set to 1
  4. Double Click SCRNSAVE.EXE and set to "black16.scr"
  5. Double Click ScreenSaveTimeOut and set to the number of seconds (e.g. 600 for 10 minutes)
  6. Exit the registry editor
