How to enable and configure screensavers on Windows 10

Screensavers were once an important feature in PCs hat allowed your PC to go idle and – well save the display from burn-in. They aren’t 100% necessary anymore, and most users probably have forgotten they exist, but that doesn’t mean the Microsoft police will arrest you if you choose to use them once more. If you’re using a monitor that you think might be conducive to burn in, the screensaver option is still useful. Else, you still get the pretty graphics.

How to enable screensavers on Windows 10.

  1. Open the Settings app from the Action Center/Start Menu
  2. Once in the settings app, Navigate to Personalisation > Lock Screen > Screen Saver
  3. Select Screen Saver, and you’ll now get the legacy screen saver menu now popping up.
  4. Under Screen Saver, you can now select the type of screen saver you want. Microsoft will let you select a moving image,a selection of photos, or 3D text and images– just like you would in the nineties and noughties. Microsoft lets you customise just how long your PC should wait before activating the screensaver, and whether it should display the logon screen.
  5. Click the “Apply” button once its all set up as you’d like and then click Ok to set your screensavers.
