September 19, 2018

 

Today we open the answers-questions column.

Screenshot_197

Despite the fact that the site has a special section with the most frequently asked questions on the screensavers, we often receive the following questions:

  1. How to remove (delete) a screensaver?
  2. I installed the screensaver, but it shows a black screen. What to do?
  3. I downloaded your screensaver. Nothing works….

And so let’s clear up the above situation.

You downloaded a screensaver and nothing works. It happens,

1) when a screensaver is mistakenly downloaded to a phone or tablet, and not to a computer or laptop. Screensavers only support desktop computers or laptops.

2) the computer where the screensaver was downloaded does not have special codecs for some reason (it is very rare)

3) Anti-virus application can block the installation of a screensaver. This sometimes happened  when we showed the advertisement during the installation. Now the situation changed and all screensavers go without advertising.

In this case, write to us at is@newfreescreensavers.com, and describe the installation steps in details, how you downloaded, where, what software is on your computer. We’ll figure out what to do in this situation.

Black screen.

Hooray, you downloaded the screensaver and even installed it. But instead of a cute animated picture, you see a black screen. In 99 cases out of 100 the update the flash player helps. In this case we always recommend Adobe. Here is the link.

How to remove a screensaver.

We often recommend clearing the space on your computer, removing unused programs, including screensavers. How to do it, read the detailed instructions on our website

We wish you all a good mood and check us back for new screensavers and emotions.

3 Travel Ideas on Autumn

August 15, 2018

Hello

Despite the fact that it is summer outside, today we want to talk about autumn. There is an opinion that it is better to travel only in summer, the weather is good, the sea is warm, the sun is bright. Yes, indeed, in summer everything wakes up, people start to move, travel, and urgently go to the sea. In autumn appears a huge desire to wrap in a warm blanket.

In fact, you can get a lot of impressions not only from summer. Today we want to share with you the ideas of traveling for this autumn.

1) Winery or gastronomic tours

nfsSSAutumn

For visiting wineries and vineyards, autumn is the most interesting and beautiful time. You can enjoy stunning views of the grape fields, as well as participate in gathering of grapes and wine production. It all depends on what you are most interested in. In some regions, grapes are already harvested at the end of August, and production is at it`s pick in November.

The most popular destinations are in Italy – Tuscany, Piedmont and Sicily, in France – Bordeaux and the Loire Valley, in Spain – Rioja. Recently, tourists have shown a special interest in Germany, the Moselle Valley.

For taste download a screensaver featuring grapes.

2) Amusement parks

Why fall. Because in autumn there are not so many people in them, the children return to schools, and you can “calmly”, without queues, to ride on all the attractions. Just choose where to go: Disneyland Paris, Europa Park Germany, Port Aventura World, Spain, Water World, Cyprus, Tivoli Gardens, Denmark.

For the mood here are screensavers of different cities.

3) Learning a foreign language.

nfsSchoolClock

Learning a foreign language abroad is the most interesting adventure in the country of the studied language. Autumn is a great time to study. Studying abroad is about new places, expansion of horizons and new acquaintances. For example, on the site Linguatrip you can choose a school where there are classes only for those who is over 26, and/or you can pick up a course for your children and in parallel for you.

For inspiration we offer a screensavers from Back to School collection.

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.
