User Settings/Prefs Win2000

By markmc ·
One would think that If user "A" changes the screen rez on a Win2000 box that the screen rez settings would be saved. This is not the case. If use "B" logs in and changes the settings to something like 800x600 then when user "A" logs in he has to change his rez back to 1024x768.

Could not find what was need in policies. Can only lock out changes for everyone. Thats not acceptable.

Anyone have an idea how to save all settings for users?

As a possibility, if you want to force a resolution you could always set it as desired and then disable the settings tab via the registry...

User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
System]
System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
System]
Value Name: NoDispSettingsPage
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: (0 = disabled, 1 = enabled)

Actually, you can use GPO to do this. After you open the Group Policy for the local system, you can go into "User Configuation > Administrative Templates > Control Panel > Display" and configure the options for the video resolutions. After you close the MMC, change the NTFS permission to the %windir%\system32\GroupPolicy\User folder so only the users you want to be restricted can read the files. This will allow you to restrict them from making changes while allowing other users to change theresolution.
