    Windows 10 screensaver with multiple folders


    When I select a specific folder within “Pictures” - screensaver goes through and displays the photos in that specific folder.

    However when I select the folder Pictures (which contains 100s of folders) – it stays on the 1st picture and doesn’t go thorough that folder or any of the other folders or display any of those pictures!

    Is there a limitation to how many folders windows 10 version 1803 can handle?

    Any clue what could be the issue here please?

    Thank you very much,
    Philip

    Setting Picture Screensaver for Multiple Screens

    Hi Daryan,

    Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    To assist you better, I like to know; are you using any third-party screensaver?

    If yes I suggest you to change the screensaver to Windows default screensavers and check if it helps.

    To set the Screensaver on the extended display, follow the below steps:

    Step 1: Right-click on a blank area of your desktop and select “Personalize.”

    Step 2: Click “Screen Saver” at the bottom-right corner of the window.

    Step 3: Select the desired screen saver from the drop-down menu and indicate a “wait” time in minutes. The screensaver will come on automatically after the computer has been idle for that period of time.

    Step 4: Check the “On resume, display logon screen” for added security, if desired. This feature requires you to enter your password when resuming your Windows session.

    Step 5: Click “Apply” and then “OK.”

    Step 6: Click on the “Display” link at the bottom left.

    Step 7: Click “Adjust Resolution” on the left.

    Step 8: Choose “Extend these displays” from the Multiple Displays drop-down menu if you’d like a single screensaver to travel across both displays. Click “Duplicate these displays” if you want a duplicated screen
    saver to display on each monitor.

    Step 9: Click “OK.”



    Hope it helps, reply to us with the status of your issue. We will be happy to assist you.

    How to change the screensaver for Windows 10

    Hi

    Thanks for this comment. Your suggestion concerns the image(s) displayed as background. I already do this for the background.

    My question did not concern the background but rather the screen saver. I can send the screensaver to an (in my computer) image directory containing any number of files (say 100). The screensaver picks only a limited number (I haven't counted, but it's
    about 20). The screen saver stays with that set, displaying them in the same order on each repetition through the images. My question is whether it is possible to dislodge the built in screensaver from fixating on the same small set of images and displaying
    them in the same order? Of course, the image set will change if I change image source directories, but the problem repeats if I do (though with a new set of 20ish images from the new directory).

    Any work-arounds?

    Thanks

    Howard
