    Screen Saver for use with my photos


    I have a great screen saver that I have used for years - Firehand Screen Saver. Unfortunately now that I have come to install it on a new PC it won't recognise the ID and PW required. The guy who wrote and marketed it is no longer trading - the problem with one man businesses!

    A remote hope - is anyone else using this screen saver (and its companion photo viewer Ember) and willing to pass on registration information
    or
    suggest a screen saver I can use with my photos. A search for free ones seems to just produce ones with built in images.

    Have you tried Windows Screen saver?

    Enter settings and in setting search bar type screen saver, when you type in the text you should get an option to Change Screen Saver

    Inside of the screen saver pick photos, and then settings to point to photos.

    Thanks for the reply. I tried it and had a different problem. See my earlier post "Screen saver spreads image between the two monitors" a few hours ago.

    Not following. What problem?

    Are you referencing a set package of pictures?

    Sorry - would have been easier had I known how to directly point to a post! What I had posted was
    Although I have setup the two screens to work independently - one app running on one screen and a different app running on the other, when Windows screen saver kicks in, the image appears half on each screen. i.e. as if I was using a very wide monitor and the image is in the centre.
    By contrast, the desktop images that I use as background, which are set to change every hour or so, display properly in their own screens. A different image on each screen.
    What have I missed or is this a problem with the Windows screen saver?
    When I got my old screen saver working, the problem went away so it was obviously a W10 screen saver issue.
