    Thanks i did that but it just opens screensaver to run. I need to be able to go to the settings in screensaver.
    Create a shortcut with this target:

    C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL desk.cpl,,1

    Works for me.

    Right click on the Desktop and select New then Shortcut.
    Copy and paste the the string Edwin gave you into Type the location of the item box: C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL desk.cpl,,1Click Next.
    Give it a name like Screen Saver then click Finish.

    You should now have a Screen Saver shortcut on your Desktop. Double click on it will open Screen Saver settings.

    Note: To test the string, open a Command Prompt then copy and paste the string ito it and press enter.

    Perhaps another solution would be to add @Brink s 'Personalization(classic)' menu to the Desktop right click context menu:

I'll try to use a folder with pictures as screensaver - which I had in WINXP and WIN7. But I receive a message, that the folder can't be used because it's not in the right place. Where should I store this folder to work as screensaver in WIN10?
For whatever reason the screensaver doesn't come on, any ideas what might cause this?
