    Can't access more than 100 screensavers in settings menu?


    I have lots of small screensavers installed - many are just variations and sets of a similar theme, but show individually in the screensavers settings drop-down box. It seems that I cannot access anything beyond the first 100 - for me that means anything after midway through the letter S isn't listed in the drop-down box. So I can't access settings for some of my screensavers, as I need to bring it up through that drop-down box and click settings.

    Is there any way around this? Why would it be capped at 100? I counted and I have 100 listings available, and it ends part-way through the letter S.

    I would suggest you to try the following steps and check if that helps.

    • Go to the folder C:\Windows\System32 and sort by file type.
    • Look for the screensaver file type (.scr).
    • Find the file scrnsave.scr(you can choose any of the screensavers).
    • Right click and select send to>desktop (create shortcut). The shortcut on my attachment, but when i click on it my screen goes off and on and nothing else.Accessing screensaver settings button :)

    Can't access more than 100 screensavers in settings menu?


    Just made a restore point just in case, and installed it. Instantly I have access through the program to all the screensavers and settings. Thanks a ton for the suggestion!

    I still can't imagine why Windows would limit me like that. But thankfully there's something out there that lets me work around it.
