    I just updated to CU. I use Windows Live Photo Gallery in the screen saver. I now have the same problem as originally reported. The other options work, so there's something about WLPG that needs to be fixed.
    Yeah I've had issues with the live photo gallery screensaver in the past. On one of our machines it would re arrange all the desktop items/shortcuts every time we came out of it. Now steer well clear of it. Shame because it's a good screensaver with good effects that worked great in windows 7. The default windows 10 photos screensaver is bland beyond belief

    Scottyboy99, I don't actually have a problem with WLPG itself. The problem is with CU in relation to WLPG. Before CU, I never had any kind of serious problem with WLPG. My understanding is that M$ realizes it did something wrong in CU related to WLPG and is supposed to fix it in the next release, whatever that means (probably Fall CU).

    Of course, you're right about W7. A lot of things were better there. If I knew then what I know now I probably wouldn't have left W7 until support was stopped. I made a list of things I would have to do to go back to W7; it was about 40 steps long. At that point I gave up. Software companies and web sites should leave 'good' alone and stop fixin' stuff that ain't broke. Thanks for responding.
