How To Set Up Group Policy Auto logoff In Windows 7?


Hello, I am afraid that setting up auto log off in a group policy is not very possible. But instead you can setup auto log off for each user by using the registry method.

Step 1: Press Ctrl+R and type “Regedit”

Step 2: Move to the following place

HKEY_Local_Machine–>Software–>Microsoft–>Windows NT–>CurrentVersion–>niFileMappings–>Control.ini

For 64-bit users use the other path as mentioned below

HKEY_Local_Machine–>Software–>Wow6432Node–>Microsoft->Windows NT–>CurrentVersion–>IniFileMappings–>Control.ini

Step 3: Right click control.ini and select permissions.

Step 4: Add Everyone to give permissions for the system to logoff.

Step 5: Set the Screen Saver “Logoff Screen Saver” and press OK button
