Screen Saver Location

by BobHo In reply to Screen Saver Location

Do you mean a screen background? Screen saver files are not jpeg files and jpeg files cannot be used for screen savers.

That said, the screen background files are usually located in the windows system root directory (i.e. c:\winnt\) but you can browse to any directory to load a graphic file for the background.

Screen saver files are of type scr and are usually located in the system32 directory under the system root (i.e. c:\winnt\system32). You cannot browse to any directory to locate other screen saver files, they will need to be here to appear in the selection list.

Hope this helps,

Screen saver files are located in c:\windows or c:\winnt. If you scroll through you will see all of the other .bmp .jpeg, etc. files. You can also right-click on your desktop (not over any icons) click on properties at the bottom and in the background tab click the browse button. In this window you can either double-click the windows or winnt folder and the .bmp, .jpeg, .jpg files will be seen.

You need a "slide show" style screen saver in order to add your own images.

There are numerous "freeware" slide show creators.
Many image editing software packages include slide show savers.

Another option is the free saver from www.secondnaturecd.com

With the Second Nature package, you create a folder anywhere you want with your images in it, and point the "collection" wizzard to the folder.
