    update changed my screen saver

    Actually, it gave me a second SS! The one I have on the working desktop is okay, but pre-log-in, it used to be in the generic plain green. But now it's used an old SS from my file of pictures. This happened in the big update last week.
    I've searched and searched but (I think) because I don't know the proper term for either of these desktops, I'm not finding any answers.

    So it's when initially logging in and before putting in the computer password.

    Thanks for any help - you all are always so helpful on here.

    Well I go to the foot of our stairs!
    I really thought I'd explored all that but evidently not!

    Thank you so much. You're a star!

    You're welcome, I don't like too many pictures on desktop and screens, most of it is just plain color. Screen savers not using since old boob tube monitors.
