How to Find and Set Screen Savers on Windows 10

For whatever reason, Windows 10 has created discovering screen saver configurations unnecessarily complicated. Fret not, however. We are here to help.

Press Windows+I to open the Settings program.

Click “Personalization.”

Switch to the”Lock Screen” tab.

Click the”Screen saver settings” link.

Though not strictly necessary on contemporary LCD screens, screen savers still can be fun. For many of us, they supply something nice to look at–or offer useful information–if our computers go idle after a couple of minutes. Back in Windows 10’s continuing –and cluttered –push to move settings from the Control Panel to the Settings program, and also the screen saver settings have been relegated to an unanticipated slot over the Personalization configurations. Worse still, you can not even get to the atmosphere by searching the Start menu. Here is how to find it.

In previous versions of Windows, you can put screen savers through the Personalization management panel.

You might also carry out a fast search for “screen saver” on the Start menu and find the settings like that.

In Windows 10, neither of these methods work. Instead, press Windows+I’ll open the Preferences program, then click “Personalization.”

About the “Personalization” webpage, change to the”lock display” tab.

And click the “Screen saver settings” link.

In the end, you’ll visit the”Screen Saver Settings” dialog box, which should seem pretty familiar for you. Nothing about it’s changed in the past several versions of Windows.

Pick a screen saver in the dropdown, fix any options through the “Preferences” button, then set how long Windows need to wait until engaging the screen saver, and decide whether it should show the widescreen display –and ask for a password–when restarting.

As we mentioned, monitor savers are mostly for pleasure these days, but concealing the setting is still fairly bothersome. Do you still use screen savers on Windows? Please leave your comments in our discussion forum.
