Screen Saver option gone

By spydermike72 ·
When I right click on my desktop and choose properties, there is no Screensaver tab. I am running WinXP Pro. How can I get it back ?

Is this machine on a domain? It may be a group policy that is blocking this or a local policy.

The Laptop is not on a Domain, I am a remote employee connecting through a VPN. I am sure I had it previously, I just noticed it recently.

You can try doing a System Restore if you have that running.

Otherwise we'll need to know what you installed/changed that could have caused this to happen.

Navigate to


If there is a DWoRD Value such "NoDispScrSavPage" with a data value of 1 this will disable the screen saver tab. Change the value to 0 or delete it to
see the tab again.
i see that you have the screensaver tab but see if there is anything else that looks like it is for the other tabs
