Windows always has so many features, there is no way to know about them all, but of course I try to find them. Here is one that can personalize the whole feel of your computer.
When you leave your computer unattended a screensaver usually pops up. Not only does this save your screen from dying, but it stops other people from viewing what you had on the screen at the time. I will show you how to change your screen saver, but with a twist.
If you already store your pictures in the My Picture folder on your computer, it will be easy to create a screensaver slideshow.
To enable the Windows slideshow screensaver
- Right click on the empty screen which is the desktop. This will open the Display Properties box.
- Choose the Screensaver Tab from the top menu
- In the drop down menu, choose My Picture Slideshow
- Click on Preview to see what it is going to look like.. If there are pictures that you do not like move them out
- Press Apply, then OK
There is a downside to this slideshow. It shows any picture randomly that is in the My Pictures folder. I had to move my Ebay pictures out of this folder to stop them from showing, even though they were in their own sub-folder.
