Screensavers were a kind of duty in times when CRT monitors dominated the computer world. However, with the introduction of the more advanced LCD screens that did not need this protective function, everything changed and screen savers became a relic of the past.
Nevertheless, there are still people who like them very much and appreciate their artistic atmosphere and would like to see them on their screen, but don’t know if this option is still available in Windows at all.
Guess what? It is, and you just have to make a few changes to your Windows 10 settings and voila! You can enjoy a retro feel on your brand new PC.
