    Screensaver time not saving


    I have a windows 10 computer and I have a problem with my screen saver.
    Whenever I try to change the time, it just goes back to the original time of one minute which is incredibly annoying.
    I tried turning the screensaver off but after a minute it just takes me to the lock screen.

    I don't know much about computers so try to make your explanations as simple as possible

    Thanks

    :)

    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.Screensaver time not saving :)
