Changing the screen saver

Windows is pre-loaded with a number of screen savers. Screen savers help to prevent an image from permanently "burning" into the display. To change the screen saver, follow these steps:

A Display Properties window opens.
Click the Screen Saver tab.

In the Screen Saver menu, click the screen saver to be used.
After a screen saver is selected, it automatically opens when the computer is idle for the number of minutes specified in the Wait field.
To protect the computer when coming out of screen saver mode, enable the password protect feature in On resume .
To view option settings for a particular screen saver, click Settings on the Screen Saver tab. Click OK to change the settings. Click Preview to see how the selected screen saver displays on the monitor.
To clear the screen saver after it has opened, move the mouse or press any key.
Click OK to save the screen saver.
Close the Display Properties window.
Windows 98 or Me

Click Start , click Settings , and then click Control Panel . The Control Panel will open.
From Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes , and then click Display .
Click the Screen Saver tab.
In the Screen Saver menu, click the screen saver to be used.
Click Preview to see how the screen saver will appear on the screen. Click Settings to modify the settings for the selected screen saver (if available). Move the mouse to exit from the screen saver preview.
To create a password to protect the computer when coming out of screen saver mode, select Password protected , and click Change . If you do not want a password, skip to step 8.
Type the password, confirm it by typing it again, and then click OK .
The screen saver will start if the computer is idle for the number of minutes specified in the Wait box. Change the number of minutes by clicking up or down on the arrows. To clear the screen saver after it has been activated, move the mouse or press any key.
