Windows 7: Can I Get Screen Saver to Fill The Screen?

Can I Get Screen Saver to Fill The Screen?

While the Windows 7 desktop background pictures fill the screen, the screen saver photos do not.

Is there a way to have the latter fill the screen as well?

Welcome Rambling One,
Are your pictures big enough to fill the screen? I can get mine to fill the screen but the pictures I'm using are also Wallpaper size.

I'm using the photos included with Win 7. You'd think they'd be the same size as the wallpaper.

Yeah you would wouldn't you,
Are you using the regular photo screensaver or the windows live photo gallery one?

LoL...I didn't know there was a choice. Regular photo screensaver I believe.

Hi Rambling One
Sorry if you already know this but when you choose Screen Saver if you go to settings then Browse you can navigate to any folder on your system that has images in it to use for your screen saver. You can of course, use the sample pictures that come with Win 7 but you pobably would prefer to use your own. If the pictures you choose are not exactly the same aspect ratio as your monitor then you will get black bars either at the sides or the top and bottom of your screen. is this what you get? If not can you use the navigation above and post which folder you have selected and say if the photos in question are yours or samples that came with Win 7.
Am shutting down now as my glass of Whisky is calling, will come back tomorrow.
