The 'Lock Screen' tab in Impero Server allows you to modify the screen that displays to users when their screen has been locked by Impero. If you wish to change the background image that appears when a screen is locked, tick the option to 'Use Custom Lock Screen image'

The 'Browse' button will then become active, allowing you to navigate through your file system to the image that you wish to make your lock screen background. Please ensure your custom image is local to the Impero Server machine. Once you have selected your image, it will load into the 'Preview' panel on the right-hand side of the window.


You are able to modify the colour of the text that will appear on the lock screen by clicking in the coloured squared in the centre of the screen. This will open a new window in which you can select from a list of basic colours or define your own custom colour. Click on 'OK' to make your selection; the 'Preview' window will then change to display the 'AaBbCc' text in your chosen colour.


The final two options in this window allow you to modify the text that will appear when a user screen is locked:


The text when an Impero Policy locks the Screen

This is the text that will appear on the user screen if a screen is locked either manually by an Impero Console user or automatically via an Impero Advanced Policy.


The text when the network cable is pulled out

This is the text that will appear on the user screen if a user removes the network cable from their computer, and the option to lock screen if a network cable is pulled out is enabled.


Once you have configured your lock screen options, click on 'Apply' to set your changes.

Note: Once you press 'Apply', your lock screen image is automatically copied to your Impero Server directory (usually C:\Program Files (x86)\Impero Solutions Ltd\Impero Server\Data\image.jpg). The location displayed in the 'Lock Screen' tab will change to point to the copied image, rather than the image in your originally selected location.
