    Turn off those random "nature" photos in the Windows 10 screen saver


    Please forgive this very stupid newbie question, but I'm still getting up to speed on Windows 10 Pro. My Windows 10 screen saver (or perhaps it's the lock screen) shows random nature photos with links to each photo. I'm sure you know what I mean; it's some kind of default. I can't find how to disable this, and I know there's an easy setting somewhere. Sorry to ask this. Thanks for the help.

    :)

    Truly random screen savers

    I use the Firehand Ember screen saver (company no longer exists sadly as it still my favourite photo viewer so I can't ask them) and it draw images from my database of photos - thousands of them! It means that we occasionally get treated to slide shows of photos we haven't looked at for years.

    The problem however is that the selection is not truly random. It seems to have a preference for certain photos or groups of photos, so the random function is not truly random.

    Is there a better screen saver or alternatively a way of ensuring it is random.
