How to enable Display Control Panel

Posted: 01-18-2005, 09:03 PM
I'm trying to change my screensaver, I get a error message saying; "Your
system Administrator disabled the Display Control Panel." I am the System
Administrator. I need to find a way to enable it again.

If XP Pro, there are settings in Group Policy for Control Panel.

Here's one...

Start | Run | Type: gpedit.msc | OK |
Navigate to >>>
User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\
Prohibit access to the Control Panel
[[Disables all Control Panel programs.]]

This is what gets set by the policy above.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\
Policies\Explorer
Value Name: NoControlPanel
Data Type: REG_DWORD
Value Data: 0 or 1
0 = disable restriction
1 = enable restriction

Also, see:

"Remove Display in Control Panel" setting in User
Configuration\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\Display.

User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\
Hide specified control panel applets

Hope this helps. Let us know.
