Working on a computer shared by a lot of users can be a real pain in the butt. As a matter of fact, if you dare change something to make your job run smoothly, chances are that next time you access Windows Vista you will find out that somebody has modified your settings. This can be very annoying, above all if the changes you made have to do with the screen since its settings, if not propery tweaked, can really bother your eyes and the way you work or play. Let’s see how we can prevent users from messing up with the display’s settings.

Here is the hack to apply:

  1. Open your Notepad.
  2. Copy and Paste the following code: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System] “NoDispSettingsPage”=dword:00000001
  3. Save the file as display_settings_nochange.reg (make sure that you change the file extension from .txt to .reg).
  4. Now, right-click on the file you just created, select Open With, and select Registry Editor.
  5. Alternatively, if this method didn’t work, just double-click on the file.
  6. Reboot your computer for the change to take effect.
  7. If you want to revert the change just use this code and follow the steps above: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies
    \System] “NoDispSettingsPage”=dword:00000000
