    No Screensaver


    I just upgraded from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro and discovered that my screensaver isn't working. I go into the screensaver settings, select the one I want to use and adjust the time and everything, click apply and OK but the screensaver does not start. I had no problems on my HP Pavilion computer when I upgraded that one. Has anybody else had this problem?
    One more thing, I did a diagnostic startup and the screensaver started but when I go back to normal start up I don't have a screensaver.

    Not only don't I have a screen saver but I also do not have the ability to shut the screen off after a desired time. I like you updated from Windows 7.

    Quite frustrating to have to turn off the computer or monitor each time I leave. I was hoping someone would have had an answer but so far nothing but instructions on where to go withing W-10 to do it.

    Honestly I don't know what Microsoft is thinking. I do really like win10 but I think I may have jumped the gun so to speak and should have waited awhile for all the bugs to be fixed. You might want to try this. Go to Youtube and watch this video, it may help you with the monitor problem... Screensaver not starting? Fix it with the command. - YouTube
