Looking back at Windows Screen Saver Easter Eggs

Volcanoes

In Windows 95 OSR2 and Windows NT, the developers hid the names of 17 of the most notable volcanoes in the Northwest part of the United States in the 3D Text screen saver.

To see this Easter Egg, you begin by accessing the Screen Saver tab in the Display Properties dialog box. You then select the 3D Text from the Screen Saver drop down list and then click the Settings button. When you see the 3D Text Setup dialog box, you simply have to type Volcano in the Text box. You can change any of the other settings as you wish.
