  • Hello Cindy, thanks for posting.

    I have just tested the Nikolaus Express screensaver on Windows 10 and can confirm that the "could not set video mode" error appears and the screensaver does not work. It's a fairly old screensaver, and I cannot think of a solution off the top of my head, but I promise to look into it in the next few days. Sorry for the inconvenience!

  • I'm sorry, I've not been able to find a workaround. It just doesn't seem to be compatible with Windows 10. I hope you can find a good alternative screensaver for the holidays in the Christmas screensavers section.
