Find out how to point Windows Vista to a folder of images on your computer so you can use one of your own photos as your screensaver
Q I want my Windows Vista screensaver to use a number of images that I have put into a file called ‘Screensaver' on the Windows Desktop.
When I right-click on the Desktop to choose Personalization followed by Screen Saver, I can't work out how to direct Vista to use this file. What should I do?
A We assume by ‘file' you mean you have created a folder called ‘Screensaver', on the Desktop, into which you have placed a number of digital photo files? If so, you were already halfway to the solution.
As you have already done, right-click a blank part of the Desktop then choose Personalization followed by Screen Saver.
In the Screen Saver Settings dialogue box that appears, choose Photos from the dropdown menu under the Screen saver heading. Now click the Browse button and use the Browse For Folder dialogue box to select the your Screensaver folder on the Windows Desktop. Click OK, Save, tweak the Wait setting if desired and click OK.
