Join Malcolm Shore for an in-depth discussion in this video Change screensaver and font settings, part of Learning Kali Linux.
- Sometimes during testing,…the tools can run for quite a while with no user input.…By default Kali will activate its screensaver…and eventually power down.…In order to have a long running, unattended operation,…you can disable these features.…I'll open up my Settings pane, using the top right link.…I'll select Power.…And I'll set the screen inactivity to Never.…And I'll make sure that the Power Saving,…Automatic suspend is off.…
And then use the back arrow to return to the Settings pane.…I'll select Privacy, and disable the screen lock,…and close this panel.…That's it, we can run unattended…without Kali powering down.…If you want to change the size of, or have a larger font…in the terminal window,…this can be changed easily.…Let's open a terminal window.…I'll select Edit,…Preferences,…and select the Profiles tab.…

This course will give prospective ethical hackers a short overview of the tools in Kali Linux. Cybersecurity expert Malcolm Shore shows how to set up a virtual environment for testing, configure Kali Linux, and install toolsets for information gathering, vulnerability assessment, password and hash cracking, and target exploitation.
Because businesses are connected, they are also exposed. Vulnerability testing helps organizations limit that exposure. This course will help you explore the careers, techniques, and tools behind ethical hacking—one of the most competitive and sought-after IT security skills.
