Hello, I'm trying to disable the screensaver of specific computers but I don't find any option, there is only a gpo but it's a user policy not computer.

There are many users using the computers and many computers using screensaver so I can't disable the screensaver forcing all users.

Is there a way to do it?

Thank you

    Scope the application of the GPO to these specific computers only by using the security filter

    Hello

    There is a way to disable the screensaver on specific computers using Group Policy. Here are the steps:

     

    Press Win + R keys together on your keyboard and type: gpedit.msc.

    Press Enter. This will open the Group Policy Editor.

    In Group Policy Editor, go to User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Control Panel > Personalization.

    Double-click on the policy option Enable screen saver.

    In the next dialog, select Disabled.

    Click Apply and OK.

     

    This change will only affect the specific computer where you applied the group policy, and not all computers in the network. This way, you can disable the screensaver on specific computers without affecting all users.
