How do you get Windows 10 free update from Windows 8 to operate the screen saver?


How to customize Screensaver in Windows 10
RECOMMENDED: Click here to fix Windows errors and optimize system performance
There were times when computer monitors used to suffer from image burn-in issues caused by showing the same image for a long period of time and people used to install a screen saver to avoid the issue. The computer screens today no longer face the burn-in issues, but people still use the screen saver on their computer systems for fun's sake. Windows 10 comes with a six built-in screensavers. Let us see how you can customize screensavers in Windows 10.
Read: Are Screensavers necessary and still needed.
Screensaver Settings in Windows 10 You can get to your screen saver settings directly by typing 'Screen Saver' in the taskbar search box in the lower left corner of your system. Click on 'Change Screen Saver' and it will take you the Screen Saver settings right away where you can adjust the settings according to your own preferences.
Alternatively, right-click on your Windows 10 desktop, and select Personalize to open Personalization settings. Next click on Lock screen in the left pane.

Scroll down the Lock Screen settings and click on Screen Saver Settings. The following window will open. Here you can adjust the settings according to your preferences.

By default, Windows 10 offers the following six screensavers - 3D Text, Blank, Bubbles, Mystify, Photos and Ribbons - nothing new here. Select the screensaver from the drop-down menu and change its defaults Settings, if any are available.
For instance, the 3D Text screensaver lets you customize the text as well as a few other options.

The Photos screensaver lets you display your favorite photos as a screen saver.

Once you are done, click on save and exit.

Create Screen Saver Settings Shortcut

If you access the screensaver settings frequently, you can create its desktop shortcut as follows: However, it is easy to change the settings but if you change your screen saver often, it would be better to create a Screen Saver Settings shortcut on your desktop.
To create the shortcut, you have to right-click on your desktop and click on New > Shortcut.
Type control desk.cpl,,@screensaver in the location space in the wizard.
Click Next and give a name to your shortcut. Click Next and you are done. Give it a suitable icon of your choice.
Use this shortcut to change or adjust your screen saver settings whenever you want, quickly.
You can also create a shortcut to launch or change Screensaver state for a specific screensaver.

Enhance your pc perfomance


<span> Control Inactive System Tray Icons <p><img src="SystemTray.jpg" />You don't have to hide or show all the icons in your system tray-you can control their disappearing acts. Right-click on the taskbar and select Properties. Click on the checkbox next to "Hide inactive icons" (if it's not checked by default), then click on the Customize button. For each item on this list, you can choose "Hide when inactive," "Always hide," or "Always show" options to decide what you'll see and when.<br /> Fit More Icons on Your Desktop <p>If your screen is so cluttered with Word documents and program shortcuts that you can't see the rolling meadows of your wallpaper, you don't need to move piles of stuff to the Recycling Bin. Just change the amount of space between icons. Right-click on the desktop, select Properties, then click on the Appearance tab, and click the Advanced button. In the "Item" drop-down, scroll down to Icon Spacing (Horizontal) and Icon Spacing (Vertical); changing the value in the "Size" field will move icons closer together (while increasing the number will move them farther apart). When you're done, click OK. To make your existing icons follow these rules, right-click on the desktop, select "Arrange Icons By" and then click Align to Grid, then go back to the same menu and click "Auto Arrange."<br /> Shut Down from Your Desktop <p>If you're trying to eliminate every extraneous mouse click, you can shut down your computer with an icon on the desktop. Right-click on your desktop, click "New," and then click "Shortcut." In the "Type the location of the item" field, type "shutdown -s -t 00" to give you a way to shut down the computer immediately. (Change the -s to -r to create a reboot shortcut instead.)<br /> Change What Programs Start When Windows Does <p>You can prevent a lot of apps forcing Windows into chilled-molasses boot times-without uninstalling anything. Click Start, then "Run...," and type msconfig. This brings up the System Configuration Utility window. Click on the Startup tab to see a list of all the apps slated to start when you boot up Windows. Click the check mark next to any you don't want, and then click OK to save your choices.<br /> Type With an Onscreen Keyboard <p><img src="On-Screen-Keyboard.jpg" />Whether you have trouble with your hands or you just prefer using the mouse, typing with Windows' onscreen keyboard can be a great convenience. Navigate to Start &gt; All Programs &gt; Accessories &gt; Accessibility, and click "On-Screen Keyboard." Click OK to clear the dialogue box and then start "typing"-you can even change the settings to "press" keys just by hovering your mouse over the letter you want (enable this feature by selecting "Typing Mode" from the Settings menu).<br /> No-wait Screen Savers <p>Don't want to wait for your screen saver to kick in? Create a shortcut to it just as you would for any other program by hitting Windows key + F to search your computer and click on "All files and folders." Type "*.scr" in the "All or part of the file name" field to find every screen saver file on your computer. In the resulting list, right-click and drag the screen saver you want to your desktop. Whenever you want it to start, just double-click its icon.<br /></span>

Hi Kyle,

Here is how to change the screensaver to Word of the Day.

Click on the Apple icon at the very top right of your screen and select System Preferences. The System Preferences window will open and you will see rows of icons. Click on the Desktop & Screen Saver icon. In the next screen, click on the Screen Saver tab. Now you will see a list of different type of screen savers. Scroll down to the bottom and select Word of the Day. Close the System Preferences windows and now your screen saver should be set to Word of the Day.

Hope that helps!

How can I disable my monitor's sleep mode? I don't want the screen to go black, I want to be able to see the screen saver as it cycles. Thank you.


You can do this in the Power Savings options with Windows. For Windows 7, rght click on the display (anywhere with no icons or running programs) and choose Personalize. Click on Screen Saver in the lower right hand corner. Adjust the Wait time for the screen saver if desired and click Apply. Then click on Change Power Settings. This brings up the Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Power Settings. Then click on Edit Power Settings for the active power plan. (For desktops it is usually the balanced power). Then change the setting for Turn off monitor to Never when plugged in. Also change the Sleep time for the computer to Never. You can do the same for when on battery but it will shorten the length of time that the computer will be able to run on the battery for laptops. Then Save Changes and close the windows.

For older versions of Windows, these advanced power settings are also available from the Screen Saver settings page but details may differ.

I hope this helps.

    If I leave my computer unattended for maybe 15 min. this monitor turns itself off. Is there a way to fix that? Thanks, brumeister



    Screen savers can help protect your monitor from wear by showing a constantly changing display when your computer is not being used. Screen savers can be simple, like the Blank screen saver that turns off your monitor to save energy. To change your screen saver 1. Right-click your desktop, and then click Properties.
    2. In the Display Properties dialog box, click the Screen Saver tab.
    3. Click the Screen saver drop-down box, and then click a screen saver.
    4. Click the Preview button to see how the screen saver will appear on your monitor.
    5. Move your mouse or press a key to return to the Display Properties dialog box. To try a different screen saver, return to step 3. 6. Click the Settings button to change the standard behavior of the screen saver you selected. (Each screen saver has its own settings dialog box.) Then, click OK.
    7. In the Wait box, type the number of minutes the computer should wait to start the screen saver after you last touched the keyboard or mouse.
    8. If you are the only person who uses your computer and you are not concerned about security, clear the On resume, display Welcome screen check box. Otherwise, leave this check box selected. Note: If your computer is joined to an Active Directory, the Fast Users Switching feature will be disabled. This is a common change made to computers used for business, and it happens automatically when a computer joins an Active Directory domain. However, disabling the Fast User Switching feature is not the default setting. Almost all computers in home environments will have Fast User Switching enabled. When Fast User Switching is enabled, you'll see the On resume, display Welcome screen check box. If you're part of a domain, you'll see the On resume, password protect check box.
    9. Click OK.
