That you wish not to have a screensaver on your desktop?

Follow this information to see if it resolves the problem you are having with Windows XP.

1) Right click on the desktop

2) Properties

3) Screensaver tab

4) Select NONE from drop down menu.

5) Click Ok.

Is your problem solved? If not please post back.

it does sound like there may be some confusion,

a 'screensaver' is an image that loads after a period of inactivity, and it replaces your desktop background,

as far as im aware a screensaver file is either an .exe file or a .scr file, it couldn't be replaced with a photo.

follow the advice already given to disable the 'screensaver', i'm guessing your 'personal photo' is the desktop background.

A screensaver is a moving animation that is inducted after a period of time of inactivity to save screenlife.

However a wallpaper, is a desktop background that is displayed constantly as the background behind your icons on the desktop.


I assme the picture is a wallpaper, and after 10mins the windows XP default screensaver appears with the XP logo.


Thus following the previous instructions will resolve your problem.

If you still have the same problem?

You should post back and I will do my best to answer your query.

No probs! I dont mind at all.

I probably was browsing another area of the forum.

"A screensaver is a moving animation that is inducted after a period of time of inactivity to save screenlife."

i was gonna post that, but then realised that the standard XP screensaver (like The Kopite see's) is just a still image of the XP logo.

but the idea behind the screensaver is to have a moving image, as a still image over a length of time could damage a CRT screen, which makes the XP screensaver even more pointless!

oops, i've just tried it, and the XP logo hops around the screen after about 10 seconds.

perhaps i should of tried it first, nevermind.

Yes, the Windows XP logo does move.
