Screen Savers for Windows 2000

By ChrisP90 ·
In previous versions of Windows there was a screen saver option that allowed a user to select a clock as their screen saver. It may have been something like selecting the standard Marquee and then there was a checkbox there that allowed you to display the clock or something like that. Is there any such thing for Windows 2000? I have a Win 2000 user who wants a clock as a screen saver and I don't want to use a third party screen saver so was hoping that there was such a screen saver built into Windows.

Windows 2000 supports screen saver files of previous versions of Windows.

You may copy ssmarque.scr (Marquee screen saver) to Windows 2000 system folder and go shead to configure screen saver setting accordingly.

It's the 3D Text screen saver (part of 2000Pro) select time instead of text from the screen saver options.

Answer Number 2 hit the nail on the head. It is the 3D Text (Open GL) that allows you to select Time under the properties of the screen saver. Please make sure that the customer know that (Open GL) screen Savers use a lot of CPU time and will slow asystems performance. Some cause the system to Lockup while they are running and require a reboot to clear.
