  1. Just updated to 20H2 - screensaver does what it wants!


    My computer just auto-updated to 2020-10 Security for Flash, 2020-10 Cumulative for 2004 and 2020-10 Cumulative for .NET... and I seem to have lost all control of screensaver. I had it set to Blank screen after 240 minutes and it blanks the screen after 5 minutes. Had the Power set to turn off Never and was changed to 15 minutes.

    How can I either save and restore my settings or lock my settings so Microsoft can't arbitrarily change them?

    :)

    I did this"

    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.Just updated to 20H2 - screensaver does what it wants! :)

  3. Screensaver Issues After the Latest Update

    Hello,

    Outdated drivers can be a possible reason why you cannot exit your screensaver when you press the space bar. To better assist you, we need the answers to the following questions:

    • Do you receive any error messages when you are trying to exit the screensaver?
    • Have you tried updating your graphic's card driver?

    In the meantime, we suggest setting your screensaver to use images from the Photo app
    instead of the Windows Live Photo Gallery and see if the issue still persist. To do this, simply follow the steps below:

    • Click the Start button and type Settings
      on the search box. Click on the first option.
    • Select Personalization.
    • Click on Lock screen.

    We are looking forward to your response.
