    Screen Saver No Longer Works


    I know screen savers are outdated, however I still like to see pictures rolling across my monitor when it's been left alone.

    Over the past three day's I've noticed my screensaver hasn't been kicking in. I have done all of the obvious culprits, checked for windows updates, tried changing it from Photos to a Win 10 .scr, changed the time out settings before the screen saver kicks in.

    I have on all of my OS's had the power plan settings "turn off display" - Never and "put the computer to sleep" - Never

    I have just tried using the Tutorial

    Specify Screen Saver in Windows

    However I can only get to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows

    regedit.jpg - Google Drive

    Any ideas please, I'm missing my photos *Eek

    :)
