    Photo Gallery Screensaver Not Working

    As the title says it all, ever since the upgrade, the current screensaver called the Photo Gallery stopped working, all my other screen savers work.

    Can I have any solutions on this?

    No solution but a question. What does "all my other screen savers work" refer to? Have you installed third-party software for that? If so could be one of them has taken over the task to the exclusion of Photo Galler.

    Okay, so all the other screensavers, when I press their properties button, they open up a dialogue to where I can change their settings. The Windows Photo Gallery screensaver does not open up. I know Windows 7 has a hotfix tool that I can use, but its not available for Windows 10.

    Please note, it worked BEFORE the upgrade.

    Unplugged joystick and problem vanished. Usb devices seem to be the problem.

    I don't know what I did but I left it alone for a few days, and it seemed to have fixed itself.
