Windows 7: Personalization in Starter Ed.

Personalization in Starter Ed.

Hi there. I am running Win 7 Starter on a netbook. Like many others I am puzzled by the lack of personalization. I'll get used to it, and I don't mind the wallpaper issue. What I do wish to know is this: where is the function where you change your screen saver for instance? It's not in the menu you get by right clicking on your desktop. What I have been doing is entering the word screen saver in the 'search box' and it takes me there. Seems to be a roundabout way. Should be in the Control panel, but I haven't found it. Also, is there a (Microsoft) website dedicated to tips for Win 7 starter users. Thanks for your help in that.

Hello Gallicbear,

These may be able to help you with this. The shortcut will allow you to open the screen saver settings window directly.
Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thank you for the answer, Brink. I'll try it out; but it seems fairly simple.
