  1. Screen saver using every photo, not only those selected


    My windows10 screen saver is using every photo on my computer, not just the photos in the "Pictures" folder (which is what I have selected in the screen saver settings). And Ideas on how to correct this?

    :)

    screen saver

    Hello,

    This is how to set photos as your screensaver:

    Step 1: Open Settings app. Navigate to Personalization > Lock Screen.

    Step 2: Scroll down the Lock Screen settings page to see Screensaver settings link. Click Screen Saver settings link to open the classic Screen Saver Settings dialog.

    Step 3: From the list of screensavers available, choose Photos from the drop-down dialog.

    Step 4: By default, Windows 10 uses photos saved in the Pictures folder for the screensaver. If you want to change this location, click the Settings button to open Photos Screen Saver Settings dialog.

    Step 5: Click the Browse button, select a folder and then click Ok button. Click Apply.

    Note: If there are sub-folders under the selected folder, photos in subfolders will be used for screen savers as well. This may help since you want all of your photos to rotate.

    You can have as many pictures as you like rotating and if you want to change them, just select a different folder or add and remove as desired to the existing folder.

    I hope this helps!
