Using a Screensaver
Screensavers display moving designs on your computer screen when you haven’t typed or moved the mouse for a while. This prevents static images from burning into your screen and provides some small degree of entertainment if you’re bored at your desk.
Right-click anywhere on the desktop and click Personalize.
Click Screen Saver.
Select a screensaver from the Screen Saver drop-down list.
Select the number of minutes you want the screen to be idle before the screensaver activates.
Click OK when you’re done.
