  • Creating Custom ScreenSavers on using GPO


    I have a challenge on creating custom screensavers using JPEG images or Flash Across the entire domain.

    I know the file format should be .scr but how do I go about it, I have read a lot of post online.

    Is there no freeware I can get online to create the .scr files.

    When I Google "create screensaver from jpg" I get a lot of useful information...

      I actually dug deep this time, and got an application called Digital Photos Screensaver Maker which creates both a .scr and .exe files.

      I have applied the group policy on the screensaver and its working perfectly.

      Thank you.
