Hiding Screensaver but not Desktop

New Contributor II

Hello all

I'd like to hide only Screensaver, as we do not allow people to mess with it, but not Desktop, as we do allow to change it at the moment. 


What would be best way to do this?

Unfortunately I don't think it's possible to do this. Apple only allows us to block a Preference Pane as a whole, not a subsection of that prefpane, unless it's an option (like a checkbox) within it. Case in point, the "Require password" drop down under Security & Privacy > General.

I haven't seen any controls that would allow you to block the Screen Saver tab of the Desktop & Screen Saver prefpane and leave Desktop available.
