  • Hello Manan,

    Those screensavers do not require Flash to be installed on your computer.

    When you say they're not working, what happens exactly when you try to run them?

    I've just tested a few of these to work on a PC with Windows 11.

  • None of them worked on my Laptop either. They don't kick in at all. Beautiful screensavers my Windows 11 won't run them. Spent a lot of time downloading and installing. Should have done 1 at a time I guess to make sure it worked. When choosing them as the screensaver, I can choose the options and can see the preview but they just don't play.

  • Thanks for reporting that, Norma. I'm unable to replicate that issue at this time on a Windows 11 computer, but I've heard of this happening so I'll be looking into it.

  • Hi Rob

    Thanks so much for looking into this. I hope we can find a solution. If I can help in any way I would be happy to do so.

  • And is this specifically an issue with the screensavers listed in the first post above, or are you all unable to get any screensaver to work on Windows 11?

    I'm asking because the first 5 of the 6 listed above are from the same company, so if one doesn't work it makes sense that the other won't either. The 6th is from a different company, though, and that screensaver requires Flash, which was removed from Windows early last year, so that one is unlikely to work for anyone today.

    If it affects all screensavers, it's possible there's a third-party app that's interfering. This can be an anti-virus program (other than the default Windows Defender that comes pre-installed with Windows), or anything else running in the background.

  • Hi

    On mine, it seems to be all the screensavers including the ones that come with Windows 11

    Thanks again for your help
