Create a personal screen saver using your photos

If you like using a screen saver and have digital photos on your computer, you can easily make your own screen saver using the pictures that you have stored on your PC. You can set up your screen saver in Microsoft Windows XP to display a slide show of some or all of your pictures when you’re not using your computer.

To set up a My Pictures slide show for your screen saver

  1. Right-click the desktop, and then click Properties.

  2. In the Display Properties dialog box, click the Screen Saver tab. Then, click the Screen saver list, and click My Pictures Slideshow.

  3. Click OK.

The next time your screen saver starts, you’ll see a slide show of all the pictures in your My Pictures folder.
