Santa's Workshop

Take a look inside Santa's workshop on the North Pole, where elves are busy preparing presents to be handed out at Christmas time. In this animated screensaver, four elves are at work putting together toy cars and planes, then send them on their way through holes in the walls, while snow falls outside behind the windows and music plays in the background. A calendar on the wall at the back of the workshop counts down the days until Christmas, and occasionally Santa Claus himself peeks in to check on the elves' progress.

I just installed the latest version and it's great. In an earlier review I complained about the lack of sound, but I can listen to Christmas music on my laptop while looking at this screensaver. I recommend this to anyone who likes Christmas, it's perfect.

For those who want the sound, you need to find the installed screensaver in C: Windows. Scroll down to the bottom where you can find the file. Right click and hit install. You will now have the sound to go with the screensaver.

I can't get it downloaded, I clicked on the download and nothing happened... I went in to do it manually but got a screen that has nothing to do with santa's workshop.. How can I get this downloaded.

I loved this screensaver so much, used it every year the days before christmas. The version 2.0 does not play audio under windows 10/11 i would love if someone can fix this or reupload a 2.1 with audio!

My favorite for years, but downloaded the new Windows 8 version and like others, No sound :-(

Anyone know why that is?

I used to have this on my old laptop and it worked perfectly. This is a new updated version. They've added two male elves and it looks good, but there is NO SOUND! On the old version I used, music from the Nutcracker Suite played. Now, nothing, just silence. Oh well, it's free and still looks nice.

I love this screensaveer and use it every Christmas. I have the latest edition of Windows 10 and it runs just fine. I really don;t know why others have issues with it.

I have the full version of this that I bought when it came out in 2000. It works perfectly on Windows 10.

Very nice screen saver. I bought it back in 2000 but I no longer have my registration key that came with the purchase. I believe it unlocked more features. The limited version is still pretty nice though.

I love this screensaver. I bought the full version about 10 years ago and have used it every holiday season since.
