A New Trend of Freedom

January 26, 2018

Hello friends!

как избавиться от хлама

Recently I have heard from everywhere about minimalism. Lots of books and blogs are written and published already on this theme.  Many of my friends have come to this style of life due to different reasons: economical, fashion, health, no need to keep something, as we have the Internet now, etc.

Of course, nowadays, computers replace the need for cd’s, dvd’s, photo albums and paper stuff like calendars, books, phone books, notebooks, newspapers, etc. So there is no an essential necessity to keep such things at home, but there is a trick. Our computers may transfer into a big storage of different software.

We have decided to follow this trend too and remind you about the cleaning of your computer from old and unnecessary documents, folders, software, including old and boring screensavers. Here you will find a step-by-step instruction on how to delete a screensaver (or any other software) in order to free space for something new!

How to delete a screensaver in Windows 10

  1. Click the Windows “Start” button and click the “Settings” (this is the second icon above the Start icon)
  2. In the opened window click “System” and then click on “Apps & features”. You will see a list of programs, including screensavers installed on your computer.
  3. Scroll through and click the screensaver you want to delete. Click “Uninstall” to remove it from your computer.

Sometimes the screensavers cannot be removed automatically. In this case it is necessary to do it manually. The detailed instruction you can find here.

The same instruction will help you to remove any other software.

Christmas and New Year Gift Ideas

December 18, 2015

Hello dear friends,

Christmas is coming and we all start thinking of the gifts we are going to present to our family, friends and colleges.

As an IT team (free screensavers company), we have navigated the Internet for different technical gifts. So, here are 5 things what we have found out to be interested and unordinary.

  1. Christmas is time when we gather together with our family or friends. Sometimes we even prepare a Christmas dinner together, especially BBQ. For this occasion Lightsabre tongs can be a good present. Look at it, it`s funny, but the cooker will look like a real hero with it!
  2. For a big company we offer a giant piano mat. Have fun!
  3. If you plan to make a present for a teenager – gamer, have a look at a PlayStation mount. Though adults will hate it, a teenager will be happy!
  4. If you need a sport present for an active person or for a person who plans to go into sports in a new year, then a good choice is SWEGWAY. It looks that it is easy to drive it, or no…..
  5. Nowadays there are lots of smart things in our life. Do you know that even football can be a smart ball? It connects to a phone and the app that goes with it tells you how hard you just kicked it. Amazing!

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

And download free screensavers for getting in the holiday mood fast and easy!

Best regards,

Useful tips about screensavers or How to…

November 7, 2012

Hello Dear Friends,

Today NewFreeScreensavers.com  would like to remind you about some useful things about screensavers. By the way we have updated the collection, welcome.

And a screensaver  may have a password

It is possible to protect the data when you walk away from your computer by setting up a screensaver password that locks the computer as soon as the screensaver starts running.

Note that you should create a Windows password first if you do not have it.

How long does your computer show you a screensaver

It is possible to prolong the run time of the screensaver. From time to time we have got messages telling us that the screensaver plays 1 minute and then the screen becomes black, and there is nothing strange in this fact. To prolong the working time of a screensaver it is necessary to change the power and plan settings. How, please read on our website NewFreeScreensavers.com in section FAQ.

Settings

Some screensavers have the settings that can be easily modified. For example if you need to mute (turn off) the sound of a screensaver, click Settings, select a Mute option to turn off the sound of a screensaver you have selected.

Remember, when once all the changes are done click OK.
