Set and Lock Skin

Requirements: Windows Media Player for Windows XP and later.

Location: User Configuration\Windows Components\Windows Media Player\User Interface\

Enables Windows Media Player to be shown only in skin mode, using a specified skin.

This policy displays the Player only in skin mode by using the skin specified in the Skin box on the Setting tab.

You must use the complete file name for the skin (for example, skin_name.wmz), and the skin must be installed in the %programfiles%\Windows Media Player\Skins Folder on a user's computer. If the skin is not installed on a user's computer, or if the Skin box is blank, the Player opens by using the Corporate skin. The only way to specify the Corporate skin is to leave the skin box blank.

A user has access only to the Player features that are available with the specified skin. Users cannot switch the Player to full mode and cannot choose a different skin.

When this policy is not configured or disabled, users can display the Player in full or skin mode and have access to all available features of the Player.
