How to password protect windows steady state? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,
    Is it possible to put a password on windows steady state? So that when somebody want to access it, it requires a password?
    Because I am using steady state on a public computer, which has administrator rights, so the users can do what they want, but each restart the disk protection wipes all changes.
    But what if a user finds out that i am using steady state, and opens it and disables the disk protection?
    Thats why i want to password protect it. is it possible?

  • Hi lord4, though we cannot add password in Windows SteadyState, we can add Windows SteadyState to blocked programs on certain users. In that way, even he is a administrator, he's not able to open Windows SteadyState to change settings.
