Windows 7: Screen Savers

31 Oct 2015   #1

Windows 7 64bit
Screen Savers

The short list of Screen Savers that comes up in the Control Panel/Appearance & Personalisation isn't really what I would like.

How does one go about, please, in seeing what other (free) ones might be available,
and installing and adding them to the list to use ?

Also, the new Monitor (Samsung 22") that I just got does not have a "sleep mode" where the monitor goes to sleep after, e.g., 15 minutes or so. Can this be handled from the PC, or is it truly a monitor setup ?

You can make your screen saver from any picture you have. Se this article, How to Create Your Own Screen Saver with Windows Photo Gallery

I just add the aurora screensaver from Vista, always liked it :)

A screensaver is as simple as downloading and installing it, I don`t recommend it, too much garbage, be very careful.

After all, it`s just a screensaver :)

And yes, sleep mode is handled from the OS in Control Panel>Power Options

I don't use a Screen Saver. I just have the monitor turn off after 20 minutes.

Custom Screen Savers
Hi, First post on this forum sorry if it is in the wrong area but not exactly sure where to post it. I downloaded the 'Xara 3D' program I have designed a Screensaver, which has all gone well and works fine on my laptop screen but I have duplicate monitors and the screensaver does not come...

Anyone know a good place to get extra screen savers? Of course I want "safe" screen savers, nothing that uses my resources when idle, and nothing that pulls any bandwidth.
Where do you get your screen savers from?
Where do you get your screen savers from? I'm looking for some really cool screen savers that will go up to 1920 x 1080. Thanks!

I have tried to install two different screensavers and both failed, with a message that the file for them couldn't be found. When I looked where I expected them to be, as it was in XP (C:Windows) I couldn't find them or the native screensavers either. How does one install a custom screensaver

I have Windows 7 Pro 64 bit installed on two machines, and there are only like 3 (really boring, old from Windows 95) screen savers installed. Where did they all go? I was expecting nice new ones with 7...
