Unlike Windows XP and Vista, Windows 7 doesn't launch a screensaver if you leave the computer idle on the logon (or Welcome) screen. But, there is a way to change this behavior. During this episode of TR Dojo, I show you how to enable a Windows 7 logon screensaver with a quick and easy registry hack.
For those who prefer text to video, you can click the Transcript link that appears below the video player window. And for those Windows XP users who want to modify their logon screensavers, check out Greg Shultz's article, "Configure the Windows XP logon screen saver."
