Screen saver Password Protection
To protect your files by using a screen saver password
Open Display in Control Panel.
On the Screen Saver tab under Screen saver, click a screen saver.
Select the On resume, password protect check box.
If Fast User Switching is turned on, select the On resume, display Welcome screen check box.
To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Display.
Selecting the On Resume, password protect check box will lock your computer when the screen saver is activated. When you begin working again you will be prompted to type your password to unlock it.
Your screen saver password is the same as your logon password. If you do not use a password to log on, you cannot set a screen saver password.
Fast User Switching is only available for stand-alone computers and users in a workgroup. It is not available if your computer is part of a network domain.
I don't have a "Select the On resume, password protect check box." Mine says "On Resume display Welcome screen"
I use a password to logon??? Not the same as they talk about? Something different?
"If you do not use a password to log on, you cannot set a screen saver password. "
Also is their a way to hot key the screen saver?
"I don't have a "Select the On resume, password protect check box." Mine says "On Resume display Welcome screen"
That means that your will look just like it does when you log in...
As for a hot key to your screen saver, see the below thread.
I'm not tense, just terribly, terribly alert.
