Windows 10: Screensaver options and settings disappeared Solved

    Screensaver options and settings disappeared


    All of a sudden, I believe it was after MS last big update I tried to change a screensaver setting and discovered access to the settings is no longer there. Even if I search for screensaver in the main search window, it finds nothing.

    My old settings still work but there are times I want to disable my screensaver for a specific task but now the option to do so has disappeared. I know the Windows screensavers were dated but at least they worked. Problem is they still work but I can't change or disable. This has happened on 2 different machines. Any help?
