    How to keep screen active while transparent screensaver is ON?


    A lot of the work I do involves watching processes go from 0% to 100%. I need to keep screens ON and active to monitor the progress and maybe make a few clicks here and there, but at the same time I'd like to protect my monitors/TVs.

    Is there any way to achieve this? For example, enabling the 'Bubbles' screensaver (transparent mode) and working at the same time?

    I primarily use Win10x64 (2004) but a solution that also works for Win7 would be great.

    Thanks in advance.

    :)

    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.How to keep screen active while transparent screensaver is ON? :)

    Setting Picture Screensaver for Multiple Screens

    Hi Daryan,

    Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    To assist you better, I like to know; are you using any third-party screensaver?

    If yes I suggest you to change the screensaver to Windows default screensavers and check if it helps.

    To set the Screensaver on the extended display, follow the below steps:

    Step 1: Right-click on a blank area of your desktop and select “Personalize.”

    Step 2: Click “Screen Saver” at the bottom-right corner of the window.

    Step 3: Select the desired screen saver from the drop-down menu and indicate a “wait” time in minutes. The screensaver will come on automatically after the computer has been idle for that period of time.

    Step 4: Check the “On resume, display logon screen” for added security, if desired. This feature requires you to enter your password when resuming your Windows session.

    Step 5: Click “Apply” and then “OK.”

    Step 6: Click on the “Display” link at the bottom left.

    Step 7: Click “Adjust Resolution” on the left.

    Step 8: Choose “Extend these displays” from the Multiple Displays drop-down menu if you’d like a single screensaver to travel across both displays. Click “Duplicate these displays” if you want a duplicated screen
    saver to display on each monitor.

    Step 9: Click “OK.”



    Hope it helps, reply to us with the status of your issue. We will be happy to assist you.
