  1. windows 10 Screen saver is intermittent


    I expect my screensaver to protect my computer if I leave it unattended. The screen goes blank and when I return I should need my password to get in, but intermittently I find that when I return and press the start button, I get straight in without needing a password - there is no screensaver protecting the computer's security.

    Windows 10 "Bubbles" Screen Saver

    Hi guy's,

    On Windows 7 the screen saver didn't go to a black screen but it showed the desktop. Not getting that with Windows 10. Whats the deal? Have GTX750Ti

    windows 10 screen saver shortcut

    Here is what I want: Same access / functionality as in Win 8.1. That is:

    • Right-click empty desktop space.
    • Select "Personalize"
    • Get a window with the same screen saver options (turn on / off, select a "screen saver"...) that in Windows 10, Microsoft is forcing me to access through Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Personalization ->Change Screen Saver.
    The Windows 8.1 two-step process was a much more user-friendly "experience" than is the Windows 10 four-step process.
