How to Set up a Screensaver

 Hello everybody

Some of you might have noticed for the past couple of weeks this blog has been on somewhat of a hiatus. In fact we’ve been working on a new face of our web site.
Soon we will present you with a refresh look of www.newfreescreensavers.com , where more new free screensavers will be available. All free screensavers will be catagorized in order you can easily find a required screensaver.

Meanwhile I offer you a tip how to set up your own screensaver. This tip will be useful for those who have just started to personalize their own computers.
In Windows XP and Vista, you can configure a screensaver easily:
For XP:
– Click Start, then click Settings and go to Control Panel.
– When the Control Panel window opens, double-click on the Display icon. This brings up the Display Properties window.
– Select the Screensaver tab, and select the screensaver you want to use from the drop-down menu.

For Vista:
– Click Start and go to Control Panel
– When the Control Panel window opens, double-click on the Personalization icon. This brings up the Personalization Properties window.
– Select the Screensaver tab, and select the screensaver you want to use from the drop-down menu

Next steps:
– Determine how many minutes you want the system to be idle before Windows launches the screensaver, and enter that amount of time in the box provided.
– You can click on Preview to see what it will look like in full-screen use. If you want to change the settings, click Settings. Depending on the screensaver, this window can have one or more options that you can modify.
– Once you have finished changing the settings, click OK. You can also use the screensaver for security by checking the “Password protected” box. Click OK again and your screensaver is set to go!

There are several ways to get a screensaver:
– Use one of the standard screensavers that comes with Windows
– Buy a screensaver collection
– Use a program that allows you to design your own screensavers
– Create a screensaver from scratch by writing the actual code

I offer you to download one of the thousands of free screensavers on the Internet, for example, from www.newfreescreensavers.com .

    I have downloaded several screen savers from Free Screen Savers.com But when I log out of the website I for the life of me can not find the screensavers to use them. Where did they go and how can I get them to work for me ??
