Turning off the screensaver can be done by using PowerShell to change three registry settings.

You can check your current settings in your registry at this location:

HKEY Current User\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Control Panel\Desktop 


Run this code in PowerShell

#Turn Off ScreenSaver

Set-ItemProperty -Path ‘HKCU:\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Control Panel\Desktop\’ -Name ScreenSaveTimeOut -Value 0

Set-ItemProperty -Path ‘HKCU:\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Control Panel\Desktop\’ -Name ScreenSaveActive -Value 0

Set-ItemProperty -Path ‘HKCU:\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Control Panel\Desktop\’ -Name ScreenSaverIsSecure -Value 0


Refresh your registry view.  It should have changed to show zeros for the three settings.
