    Screen saver not working


    I have set my screen saver to go on after 5 minutes idle time. It seems to not want to do it all the time. Now after a recent windows update it doesn't go on. What is going on? I set the one I want and applied it. Computers been sitting awhile over an hour and it still does not go on. It really seems with every update windows makes some issue with performance.

    :)

    Win10 photos screen saver not working

    Hi. Since a time back, my photos screen saver does not work anymore.

    The preview works fine enough, but no screen saver ever starts after the time I set.

    I have NUCi3BEH with Win10 Pro 20H2 with all drivers updated, all Store updates and all Windows updates.

    I've tried some suggested fixes found by Google, but nothing helps.

    It seems it's Windows screen savers in general that does not work, not only Photos.

    Any suggestions please?
