Why your screensaver may not work on Windows 10
When your monitor turns off, your screensaver kicks in. Screensavers are preloaded on Windows 10, but you can still use third-party apps to design custom Windows 10 screensavers. It is also possible to use images in a folder as a screensaver. But if your screensavers don’t appear on your Windows 10 PC, this article can show you how to fix them. One reason screensavers won’t work on your Windows 10 may be conflicting drivers.
How to fix this error
Method 1: Update your system
Updating your Windows is the easiest way to fix screensaver problems. People are fond of disabling Windows updates on their computer to save on data consumption. Nevertheless, Windows updates help to correct bugs with the OS and make your PC function as expected. So, when you notice that screensaver is not working (probably after upgrading to Windows 10 from 8.1), go to “Settings” and update Windows.
- Press Windows key + I to launch “Settings”.
- Click on “Update & Security”.
- On the Windows Update tab, click the “Check for updates” button.
Method 2: Update drivers
Updating your drivers regularly will prevent a lot of errors, including this error. If it has been a while since you updated your drivers, then you should consider doing this. Actually, Windows can automatically update your drivers, but you can do this manually by visiting your PC manufacturer’s website to download the latest drivers for your PC.
There are also other third-party software apps that can help you to download the latest drivers for your computer.
Method 3: Check screensaver settings
What if you didn’t actually set a screensaver? Have you checked the screensaver settings on Windows 10? It’s always a good idea to check the settings. You will find the screensaver settings with the guide below:
- Open “Control Panel” (press Windows key + R and type “control panel”).
- Click on Appearance and Personalization >>> Change screensaver.
- Here you can change the settings to activate your screensavers.
