    after update can't get out of screen saver.


    After the major 10 update yesterday, the only way I can get out of my screen saver is cntl-alt-del.

    Anyone else have this problem? Solution?
    thanks,

    Hi willie47. Welcome to the TenForums @willie47

    This tutorial is worth a read, certainly reviewing Option One.

    Enable or Disable Secure Sign-in with Ctrl+Alt+Delete in Windows 10

    Does the screensaver have any settings pertaining to waking on mouse movement?

    I have always had issues with the screen saver program interruption. Sometimes it will release as soon as the mouse moves. Other times it requires left click, and a very long wait (sometimes nearly 60 seconds or more). We use the program more as a digital picture frame than a screen saver (not really needed on an LED monitor) and the program is linked to the Pictures folder. Our system has nearly 15,000 pictures (16 GB) in it and I've always suspected that the program gets hung up indexing such a large folder.

    Mind you my experience here is limited. But in the past screen saver problems were related to some complicated or elaborate saver I would try. Once I got used to a black screen, I rarely had problems. In other words, my money is on your choice of saver here. Try it without anything, just a blank, black screen. What have you got to lose?

    What are you using for a screen saver, Photos or a 3rd party prog ?

    When I use photos, the same thing happens to me occasionally. If I use ribbons or the windows default settings, there is no problem.

    OK I'm using the built-in screensaver, which 10 makes harder to get to, and it worked just fine until the latest update. What did Microsoft do to screw up their own program, this time?

    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.
