Screensaver in Windows 10
The screensaver has actually had its day for a long time. It was actually created to prevent an image from “burning” into the monitor while you are absent. Modern monitors, of course, no longer face this fate. Therefore, the monitor is no longer necessary, but it can still be helpful if you don’t want someone to look at your screen while you’re away. Therefore, we would like to show how to activate the screensaver in Windows 10 and which setting options exist.
Different options for your screensaver in Windows 10:
You have the choice! Should it be a classic rotating text or maybe the time as a screensaver? In addition to ready-made patterns, a slide show with your own photos is also possible or soap bubbles. Who doesn’t like soap bubbles? In any case, there should be something for everyone to configure the cult feature according to their own needs.
- Right-click on the desktop and select “Personalize”
- Click on “Lock screen” on the left
- Scroll down to “Screen saver settings”
- Now select a suitable screen saver. Under “Settings” you can configure it exactly
- With the point “On resume, display logon screen” you come back to the logon screen, so that your Windows password must be entered again
- Special feature: If you choose the screensaver “Photos” you can select your own directory and run your pictures from slideshow
- If you don’t want a screensaver, select “None”
- Click on “Apply”
With just a few clicks, you can turn on the screen saver in Windows 10 and configure it to your liking. We hope that you now know exactly what to do and that you have rediscovered this well-known feature for yourself. If you have any questions, just let us know under a Youtube video! We wish you a lot of fun with Windows 10!
