Can I Get Screen Saver to Fill The Screen?

Q: Can I Get Screen Saver to Fill The Screen?

While the Windows 7 desktop background pictures fill the screen, the screen saver photos do not.

Is there a way to have the latter fill the screen as well?

Welcome Rambling One,
Are your pictures big enough to fill the screen? I can get mine to fill the screen but the pictures I'm using are also Wallpaper size.

Screensaver is enabled and so is 'Display welcome screen when coming back from screensaver'.

This works most of the time, however on a regular basis the screensaver will resume to the following screen and just stay there forever.


The only thing to do is to press the power button, at which point a popup alerts that a user is logged in, do you still want to shut down.

Thanks,

I am aware of the Screen Saver setup and modify capabilities in the Personalization menu. I am also aware that there is a Preview button there also.
There is a program in the Windows system files that you can put on the Taskbar at the bottom of the screen. You can then click this Icon and manually start the Screen Saver.
I however (in my infinite stupidity) have forgotten the name of this program and where it is located. Can someone please tell me what its name is and where it is located?

I have been trying to find a good utility screen saver with things like: cpu usage, ram usage, cpu temp, etc etc.

I've found only one so far, Nafkak (spelling?), and it is terrible.

Does anyone know of another that I can try?

I did an upgrade from Win 7 , and Screen Saver / Turn off display after 5 mins was working under Win 7 64 bit
As my title suggest Screen Saver / Lock screen Slideshow / Turn off display after 5 mins are not working under Win 10
The Lock screen Slideshow is there when Win 10 starts but only shows ONE image, never moves to another.
THINGS I've done so far to get any of these working ...Screen Saver / Lock screen Slideshow / Turn off display after 5 mins
I’ve turned off all the Wake on lan functions
Tried different folder/ images for the lockscreen Slideshow ,window spotlight and picture
Tried to set new power options , was able to get SLEEP to show up in "Start" as it was not there before, but once click , the display DID turn off, but wouldn’t turn back on with mouse movement keyboard presses, had to do a hard reboot. Win 10 started without issue and the SLEEP mode was no longer aviable via the power "start" menu.
Anyone have a clue how to get all of these working. Really would like my display to turn off after 5 mins , and the Screen saver to work , the Lockscreen I'm not fussed about

Hi,
I have a Dell 1750 Inspiron laptop that I use "as a desktop" as every piece of hardware is connected to it.
It runs with Windows 7 Home Edition. It has a 4gb memory and a 450gb hard drive which is less than half used.

I have the screen saver set to Photos and usually have a cut-in time of 1 hour idle.

The screen saver cuts in exactly when it should and scrolls through my photos for as long as the laptop is left idle.

However, as soon as I touch the mouse/keyboard, instead of reverting to the "normal" screen the photos disappear, the blank screen fades for a few seconds and then a message appears in a box, saying that the Photos Screen Saver is not responding, and gives the options of either close the program or wait for the programme to respond. Waiting doesn't seem to work so I have to click on close the programme and then cancel the statement that Windows will try to find a solution, because it doesn't!

I have tried to vary the time before the screen saver kicks in, anything from 1 minute to several hours but it doesn't seem to make any difference.

Can anyone help please?

A:Photo Screen Saver wont revert back to live screen

Have you checked the timing for when the HDD turns off or Sleep or Hibernation kicks in [I disable both of those and lengthen the time on the HDD to several hours], Control Panel, Power Options?

The reason I mentioned the HDD is the symptoms you mentioned seem to apply. The screen saver could be in memory and not affected by the HDD until it's asked for something.

Hibernation in it self saves everything thats in RAM at the time the system is put into that mode. It should not lock the PC as that wasn't the state it was in before it hibernated. perhaps lock the PC before you push the hibernate button!

I have set up my Win 7 Pro 64-bit screen saver to bring up the password logon screen upon activation of the mouse/keyboard/whatever.

Late last week, whenever I moved the mouse or clicked the keyboard, the screensaver would go directly to the desktop, bypassing the logon screen. I went to the screensaver utility and unchecked and rechecked the 'On resume, display the logon screen' box, selecting 'Apply and OK' each time.

This would work for maybe two or three times and then go back to returning to the desktop.

I've run MalwareBytes, IOBit, and Norton and all come up virus/rootkit free.

Any ideas?

A:Screen Saver to password logon screen failing

There are a few seconds of "grace" time, meaning when the screensaver launches you have a few seconds to "wake it" and go back to your desktop without locking it.

I guess I can assume you're not talking about that, right?

I am having a very wierd issue with vista's screen saver. So basically when I leave the comp idle it goes into screen saver then turns off the monitor after 15 mins. Sometimes, more often than not, I come back and move the mouse and hit a few keys on the keyboard and nothing. The monitor wont come out of standby I try turning it off and back on, and nothing. I have the latest drivers for everything in my system and I checked the power management settings and they both are able to wake the computer up. I have a G15 keyboard and I keep the leds on and when this happens the leds are off and the lazer for the mouse is off too. Any suggestions as to what my problem is would be fantastic!

Thanks.

I have a very strange problem, I'm stumped and would appreciate any help.
On my new HP6910 laptop, when my XP Pro SP3 (system default XP) Screen Saver comes on, the screen has a partial heavily corrupted copy of the bottom taskbar at the top of the screen (!) and when I ctrl-alt-delete and enter my password the taskbar at the bottom is missing all of its text but otherwise looks reasonable. The Oulook, Word, and other started tasks in the taskbar at the bottom of the screen have their icons, just no text, even if there is a group of them and you hover the mouse over the group and they expand. Most of them still work, but Windows Desktop Search (WDS) doesn't work and I have to close them and restart them. This seemed to start a few days after I installed WDS, added a DVI monitor to the docking station and the same day I installed Activesync 4.5. I've reinstalled WDS and removed my wallpaper but this didn't help, I'm about to reinstall Activesync but it takes a few hours to sync for the first time so I thought I would see if anybody had any other ideas before doing this.
All help is greatly appreciated!

Hi, first post here by a rather happy Lenovo Yoga 13 + Windows 8 user.

As the topic says, is it possible to have the lockscreen turn on automatically after a few minutes?

As it is now I can only get to the lock screen after waking up the computer from the screen saver. I would like to have it configured so that the traditional screen saver is bypassed and it goes straight to the lock screen and stays there forever until I swipe it up.

I think the lockscreen is a very beautiful feature and it's great to see all these small notifications. It would be wonderful to just be able to glance at my computer and seeing these notifications without actually having to touch it.

I feel it's kind of useless to only see the lock screen while you're actually logging in, because then you'll see your notifications anyway on your start screen.

A:Can I use the lock screen as a screen saver?

The easiest way is to right click your account icon on top right of Start Screen and Lock it.

Don't know of a way to auto lock.

A:VPN window does not fill monitor screen

Think of the VPN connection as a very long wire that runs from her home computer to the office computer. Once that connection is established, some other software must be used to let her see/control the remote office computer.

Please ask her what this remote control software is and then we can probably help her to get that application's screen to be full screened. She might be using Windows' Remote Desktop Connection or any number of other remote control apps.

1. After you have got it expanded to full screen, try doing a "save as" under a new name. (I usually just put an "r" for revised after the old name. Then see if the "r" file will come up full screen. If it does, then you can delete the original file and rename the new one to remove the "r".

2. Try this: bring up a blank sheet, then open the other, get it expanded to full screen, then do a copy and paste from that to the blank sheet.

Creating a web page using frontpage2000. Inserted a photo then did a thumbnail on it. Fine. But when I clicked on the thumbnail, the photo filled up the whole screen. Why ?? How do I get it back to its thumbnail size ? Even the back tab, or arrow, up on the tool bar is covered up by the photo. I read up on the image size but I couldn't relate to a small photo blowing up to fill a 15 inch monitor.
HELP !!! AGAIN !!!

Wife has a VERY old Compaq 2300 XP laptop (yes, I know; I should trash it and get her a tablet). Today when she turned it on, the Desktop and any software, does not fill the screen. Everything is there, nothing disappears off screen; it just no longer fills the entire screen. I've tried changing resolutions, increasing the font size, etc., but these do nothing to fix the problem. And I can find no graphics property (right click empty area on screen) that deals with scaling. It looks like something has scaled the video back to ~75%. Is there a setting that will stretch it out both horizontally and vertically? If so, where is it?

BTW, I've already checked Desktop properties, and it's already set to "Stretch".

A:Display does not fill entire screen

Right click a blank area on the desktop and choose Properties. Go to the Settings tab and move the slider to the right for Screen Resolution.
If you cannot move the slider, then download the display driver for your computer. Drivers & Software - HP Support Center.

Right click the Desktop/Personalize/Display/Adjust Resolution. However using your onboard video it may not have the maximum resolution required for a Plasma TV. You will probably need to purchase a separate Video Card.

Hi so i just bought a Benq 21.5" monitor 1080P with HDMI, VGA, DVI inputs
I would use DVI if my laptop had one but unfortunatly not, The only outputs are VGA and HDMI, I whant 2 monitors so i use VGA on my 1600x900 Monitor becouse its the only input on the monitor, And hdmi on my New monitor, But i can only use 1600x900 resulotion there too to fill the screen wich is very annoying becouse the quality sucks, VGA works with 1080P but the performance compared to HDMI and the qualit compared to HDMI is terrible, So what do i do? get an HDMI to VGA adapter for my secondare monitor and use VGA on the new monitor even if the quality sucks or just live with it untill i can upgrade my Desktop pc so i accually have DVI out?

Reason why i bought a 21.5" monitor when i could by a much better one? Becouse the Benq was a used one that i got for really cheap so yeah, Its very nice for its very cheap prize

Hey all, my laptop's native resolution is 1920 x 1080, and it looks great at that resolution. However some games require a lower resolution for maximum performance. I can change the resolution to 1280x720 fine, but the new resolution does not fill the screen. Instead, it's as if Windows has decided only to show the middle 1280x720 pixels out of the original 1920x1080, creating a 4-sided letterbox effect that is quite comical. Please tell me how to resolve this so that when I resize the screen I don't just make the viewing area smaller and smaller.

Long story short. My laptop is capable of running a resolution at 1280 x 800 but currently I am running at 1280 x 720 because when I turn on my laptop the resolution doesn't fill up the screen which ends up leaving a black vertical bar on the right side of the screen. (When I am in 1280x720 I have two black bars one running horizontaly on the top, and one vertically on the right side)  I am forced to use 1280 x 720 even though it's still broken because in 1280 x 800 the taskbar is hidden and a lot of my icons are hidden.  Now, the fix that I have for this was when I was booting up the laptop I would open and close the lid before the "start windows normaly" message would pop up, and it would usually have it filled up the whole way but now this fix doesn't work.  Anyone else have this problem?

Trying to address a different problem, Gigabyte suggested that I update the BIOS on my GA-F2A88X-D3H mb from F1 to F3. In addition to not solving the problem, after I updated the image displayed on my monitor--Dell 2209 WA--doesn't fill the screen. Everything's there, but the image stops about 3.5" short of the right bezel.

Using AMD's Catalyst Control Center hasn't worked. I've read some posts about a similar--the same?--issue that suggest changing a setting in "My Flat Panel Display." But I see only "My VGA Display," with no option for over- or under-scanning.

The image does display fully on rebooting--I see the Gigabyte UltraDurable logo, and on entering BIOS instead of going into Windows 8.1 (64-bit).

Any thoughts?

Since first writing this, I've tried the monitor's menu and other buttons without success.

Is it worth getting a DVI-D to DVI-D cable to connect digitally, in place of the current VGA connection?

Does it signify that the monitor reports a screen resolution exceeding its supposed maximum of 1680 x 1050, namely, 1920 x 1080? In both Windows screen resolution and AMD CCC, I'm unable to set a resolution above 1680 x 1050, and setting lower resolutions doesn't help.

Files for your screen saver could be all over the place there is a place that part of the screen saver is or might be located but the best way to get your screen saver if you do not have the original file is the manufacturer's site that made the screen saver.

The one way you can start to find it would be to do a search for scr this is the extension for the screen saver but when you find it do a right click on it then properties and look for the web site address for the file.

I wish you good luck.

In Windows 10 the screen saver option is bured within the lockscreen settings under "screen saver settings". It still doesn't look like it has been updated since 8.1 or maybe even Windows 7. In this day and age with the quality of displays there is no real reason to use a screen saver anymore like there was in the 1990s.
Iwanted to post a poll but the option at the bottom is just a little text box and I'm not sure if i am missing something here or i just don't have that ability.
So, do you still use a screen saver and why or why not?
I don't. I just set my screen to turn off after a given amount of time and then to have it go to sleep. I really don't see any reason to use it and as for aesthetics it just looks dated and boring.

I recently bought a new computer with a 512 MB graphic card. My old computer had a 128 MB card but at the beginning, I only had 8 MB. I was using a screen saver with fish in an aquarium. With only my 8 MB card, the animation was really impressive. I tried my screen saver yesterday with my new 512 MB card and the picture was terrible. There were plenty of horizontal lines on the screen. What could explain this? Could it be that the program wasn't intented for this type of card? In those days, big cards like mine didn't exist.

A:Screen Saver??

Screen savers were developed to protect older CRT monitors from "burn in." They are unnecessary for modern monitors. Even for the older CRTs, a blank screen was fine, except that they did not have the power saving options we now have.

So, yes, using the power settings for the monitor to save power is best.

I have a P3, 650hz, and 64MB ram. This pc had a donloaded screensaver loaded on it and then it started locking up during when the screensaver was enabled. I removed the screensaver and put one of NT's default screen saver on. It does the same thign when it is activated it just stops and then if you press the keyboard it will come back up but is really slow. I have reloaded SP6 on it and didn't help

Any ideas??
 

A:Screen Saver/NT

Hiya and welcome

I use Win2000 but lets hope it works for NT. Go to Run and type MSINFO32. If this does not open, go to Programs | Accessories | System Tools | System Information.

On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. copy/paste the list.

Also, can you tell me the name and/or the site where you got it?

Regards

eddie

My friend has two drives in his computer.........one is the boot drive with windows 7 as the OS and the other is the one he stores all his photographs on and other data.
How can the screen saver  for windows 7 use photographs direct from the storage hard drive?  or will he have to copy all his photographs onto his boot drive  to facilitate this.
Thanking you in anticipation of your help.

RIGHT click an empty spot on the desktop.Choose Personalize.Choose Screensaver.Click the drop down arrow under Screensaver, select Photo Gallery.A preview will be shown in the box. Since this will be from the default setting, pictures on the C drive, he will need to click Settings/Browse in order to choose the storage drive pictures folder.After he does that, click Save.If he does not want to use all the photos, he can create a folder and copy the photos he does want to use to that folder. He can then navigate to that folder using the method I described.

I want to run the ribbons screensaver, but apparently setpoint is known for not working well with Ribbons. Every time I try to run Ribbons it stops working. Is there anyway setpoint and ribbons can peacefully coexist?
