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.

Tip

My Pictures Slideshow screensaver


Make use of the Windows XP's My Pictures Slideshow screensaver for this purpose. Follow the steps:
Using Paint brush (mspaint.exe), create 10 or more images with a Black background in each. Open each image file and embed your company logo in it, in (place it in random areas, one in each image).
Create a folder for the image files you've created, and place the images in that folder. Assign this folder read-only permissions for all the users.
Now, configure the screensaver under your user profile. In the My Pictures Screensaver properties, do the following:
Set the folder where you've stored the image files
Set the interval using How often should the pictures change slider.
Uncheck all the checkboxes at the bottom of the dialog
Click OK and save the changes
Set the Screensaver Timeout to a preferred value in minutes
Test the Screensaver in your profile to see everything is fine

My xp does not work well. the screensaver does not appear. It can not repair itself.


Hello, there can be multiple causes and solutions to this type of problem you have but my guess is that there is a service not running properly for the screensaver as in THIS Microsoft article.

To view services to see if the Human Interface driver is working go to start->Run->type in the box "services.msc" without the double quotes, and then find the service mentioned in the microsoft article.


OR you can use the registry editor to modify your screensaver settings (PLEASE ASK FOR FURTHER HELP OR CLARIFICATION WITH THIS / USE WITH CAUTION IF YOU DONT KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE DOING).

SImple example: Go to start->Run-> type in "regedit" and then go to the following registry entry/folder: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\ there you can find the screensaver key named:ScreenSaveActive, if set to 0 set it to 1 and vice versa to enable/disable screensaver modify settings.

How do i set my timer for my screensaver-when my laptop is idle?


The option is under Screen saver options or there is an idle time shut off selection under Power Saver options as well. When you select your screen saver there is are specific options to customize how it shows and how long before it activates. Some screen savers have more options than others.

Screensaver


Vista uses a different technology for screen savers than in the past. The screensavers and backgrounds are active. Older screensaver software (I inferred from your post that you had a favorite that both of you used and not one from MS) will probably not work here.

Screen saver function on protron HDTMI


Need more details - screensaver from a computer? If so some screensavers use a different resolution/refresh rate from your desktop. Make sure it is set to the same as your desktop or another supported resolution. (On Windows XP, this would be going into the display control panel, screensaver tab, properties button)

I didnt think Vista came with msvbvm50.dll. You could try to download msvbvm50 from the Microsoft website? Just a suggestion, not a definite fix. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/179492
