How to Use Your Windows Password for Your Screensaver Password

January 14, 2010

Hello

I would like to announce that soon Newfreescreensavers.com website will have a new look and more free screensavers.

A key element of the website will be the presence of categories to streamline the users ease of use.

Meanwhile here is a new tip from Newfreescreensavers.com on how to use a windows password for your screensaver password.

If you need to protect your files when you walk away from your computer, you can set up a screensaver password, which locks your computer when the screensaver is on. The screen saver password is the same password that you use when logging on to Windows.

If you don’t have a Windows password, first it is necessary to create a password for Windows .

After that you can proceed to setting a password:
1.Open Screen Saver Settings by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking ScreenSaver.
If you are using an older version of Windows you will click Start, point to Settings and then click on Control Panel.
If your Control Panel is in Category View, click the option in the task pane that says Switch to Classic View.
Double click Display. The Display Properties dialog box will open.
2.Click on the ScreenSaver tab. Under ScreenSaver, click on your choice of screen saver.
3.Select the On resume, Password Protection or On resume, Display Welcome Screen, require logon check box, set a time after which to start the screen saver, and then click Apply and OK. (Choose a wait time that’s not long enough for an unauthorized person to use your computer, but not so short that if you are idle for a moment, the screen saver locks your computer.)
If Fast User Switching is turned on, select the On resume, display logon screen check box.

How to Delete a Screensaver

January 6, 2010

Hello everybody

Recently I have received an email from one of www.newfreescreensavers.com users asking how to delete screensavers, which he does not use and has problems with.

I thought that such information might be useful for other users too.

So

1. Click the Windows “Start” button and click the “Control Panel.”
2. Click on “Programs” in the Control Panel and then click on “Programs and Features.” You will see a list of screensavers installed on your computer.
3. Scroll through and click the screensaver you want to delete. Click “Uninstall” to remove it from your computer.

Note that the screensavers that come with Windows, however, can’t be removed.

In order to enlarge your collection of screensavers, download free screensavers from www.newfreescreensavers.com
