    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?

    :)

    Screen Saver for use with my photos

    I have a great screen saver that I have used for years - Firehand Screen Saver. Unfortunately now that I have come to install it on a new PC it won't recognise the ID and PW required. The guy who wrote and marketed it is no longer trading - the problem with one man businesses!

    A remote hope - is anyone else using this screen saver (and its companion photo viewer Ember) and willing to pass on registration information
    or
    suggest a screen saver I can use with my photos. A search for free ones seems to just produce ones with built in images.

    Win10 photos screen saver not working

    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!
