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.

My screensaver will not come up on my computer


Depending on the operating system you have to go to the display setting to activate your screen saver. You can right click anywhere in the background and press on properties, the select screen saver on the tabs from top for windows XP or earlier. It's similar for win vista, 7 and 8 but its placed differently on the left side whe you select display properties.

How do I set the time that my screensaver runs and then my wallpaper somes back on?


It depends on your version of windows but in general goto Control Panel, Appearance and Personalisation (also called display in XP) and look for the screensaver tab or link. This will display the settings you require.
Sometimes you can right click on your desktop and goto properties or personalisation to get to the same menu.

Hope this helps,

Screensaver not working


In Windows XP, right click on your desktop somewhere, and choose Properties. On the Screen Saver tab, pick another Screen Saver from the drop down, and set the Wait time to 1 minute. Click OK and see if it works. You may have to drill into "Settings" next to the screen saver. Depending on your hardware, the 3D screen saver might be too much for it to handle. Try disabling some things in settings or choosing a different Screen Saver.
Hope this helps! If so, please give a rating!

Stuck on screensaver


Is your computer booting up? when you say screen saver, Im assuming that you have gotten to windows. You might want to reinstall your operating system to solve this problem. Dell computers are equipped with factory OS image. try to reboot your system and after seeing the dell logo, quickly press the CTRL key + F11, this will work if you have windows XP. If you have windows vista. press the F8 button several time if you see the DELL logo. This will lead you to the boot menu. select repair computer then use the Factory Image Restore option

Error Tab


Turn off the, or better yet uninstall, the Acer Screensaver. Something you installed, possibly a screensaver program? has corrupted the Acer screensaver causing that error message. That add-on screensaver is notoriously buggy anyway.
