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 to display a pop-up menu.
- Select Properties from the pop-up menu; this opens the Display Properties dialog box.
- Click the Screen Saver tab.
- 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.
