Screen saver on Vista

  Edith 08:10 06 Dec 2008

I would like to add personal pictures to act as my screen savers. I did this with XP but cannot recall how and have tried to find a way to do it with Vista but with no luck. There is a folder in the screen saver which I assume is where you can place photos etc but cannot work out how you get them there. Anyone have the answer to this?

Many thanks.

Right click desktop/personalise browse to where your photos are,then select the one you want.

Control Panel / Appearance and personalization / Change screen saver / Screen saver / Photos and use the settings and preview accordingly.

Why do people still use screensavers on modern computers?

I understand that the old problem of screen burn - with CRT monitors - does not apply to LCD or TFT flat panels.

Your right of course,no need for it,its just someones preference.

Thanks to everyone who has responded. I had tried going via the control panel and chosing the photo folder but I was getting a message which said "an error is preventing this slide from previewing or something very similar" However just tried it again and it now works! Thanks once again for your reponses. I have used the PC Advisor route for solving problems before and it always comes up trumps.
