Downloading a screen saver using my pictures

  • Hello Robert, thanks for posting. By default, the Photos screensaver on Windows 10 pulls pictures from the Pictures folder in your personal library. You can change the folder it uses by selecting the Photos screensaver in the Screen Saver Settings panel, clicking "Settings" and then "Browse". Choose a folder containing pictures you want to see in your screensaver, then click "OK". The next time the screensaver comes on, you should see pictures randomly chosen from the folder you selected.

    You can also use your own photos in the Lock Screen. To configure the Lock Screen, follow the instructions to get to the Screen Saver Settings panel on Windows 10, but instead of clicking on "Screen Saver Settings", use the dropdown menu under "Background" to select "Slideshow". Like with the Photos screensaver, you can then customize the folders Windows will draw images from to display in the slideshow.

    (The "Lock Screen", by the way, is the screen that displays the current time in the bottom left corner of the screen, and includes a photo in the background. Like a screensaver, it appears after a certain amount of inactivity. It's a bit confusing.)
