Step-by-step instructions

  1. From the Windows 8 tiles menu (pictured above), move your mouse into the upper or lower left corner of the screen and press the left mouse button to get to the desktop. You can also click the "Desktop" tile on the screen, if it is present.
  2. If any windows obscure the desktop, right-click on an empty area of the taskbar at the bottom of the screen, then click "Show desktop". If you have the Windows logo key on your keyboard, you can also press that key combined with the D key.
  3. Right-click on an empty area on the desktop, then select "Personalize".
  4. In the bottom right corner of the window, click "Screen Saver".
