I seemed to have aquired loads of now unused screensavers which I would like to thin out. Can some one please tell me how I can delete a dozen or so from my Display Props menu.
Many thanks for any help

Do a search on your C drive for .SCR files.

In explorer highlight your c drive and in the search fo box type *.scr - The results should display recogniseable screensavers. Generally they are in a folder called System 32 .

By highlighting those you don`t want you can remove them by hitting the delete box.

Check back to properties and they should have disappeared.

Many thanks Taff 36 & horiz5. I have located some screensavers in folder System 32 but I cannot delete them by highlighting as after deleting they just pop back again, also horiz5, where will I find the system folder in which you suggest they will be?
Thanks for any further help

Peverelli.............Been there.. Done luck. The main problems are ones that I have down loaded. Some of them are quite very long,ie the BBC's new weather screen saver suggested in this months 'Computer Active' mag. Am I using a great deal of memory by just leaving them in the Display Props? Should I just forget about them?
Thanks again

Unusual name, do you have a watch from the same? I have the "Hercules" very nice.

Thanks a lot everyone out there. I went back as per 'mistagf' idea and it worked!!! Taff36 suggested it earlier ( Sorry mistagf) but I didn't type it in properly so I got no where. Thick or what!
Sorry 'mistagf',the Hercules is a brilliant watch made by Breitling.

Hi 'Green1', I had the Chronomat Blackbird for a long time but I am now the proud owner of a 'Montbrillant' which my son gave me as a retirement present

Once again, thanks everyone for your interest and help.I can sleep easy tonight thanks to you lot!
