    • Find the file scrnsave.scr(you can choose any of the screensavers).

  4. Windows 10 screensaver not working

    Screensaver not working after updated to Windows 10 Creators Update.

    No change after following suggested steps. It works fine and then I get the message that it could not load that screensaver. Then it will work again for a few times and then decide not to work. A fix would be greatly appreciated since it does not come
    out of the screen that says it could not load the screensaver easily.
