Windows 10: Screensaver doesn't work with pictures

    Screensaver doesn't work with pictures


    I know some people have had issues with the screensaver not working. In my case all the screensavers work, except the one I want -pictures. I have always used pictures as a screensaver with other windows os with no problem.

    What happens is I can see the pictures scrolling in the mini monitor it shows you, but when I hit preview or when it goes into action, the screen goes black. I have tried using different folders in different drives and using different pictures, but still nothing but black.

    Any suggestions?

    I know this may be a stupid question but have you ticked the folder the pictures are in .
    Or clicked the pictures you want to use and pressed apply or save

    System offers "recommended" settings. Do you use that ?

    Hey that worked! I set it to the recommended settings, which was way too small for my monitor, then set it back to a larger size and the screensaver still works. Thank you!!
