My friend has two drives in his computer.........one is the boot drive with windows 7 as the OS and the other is the one he stores all his photographs on and other data.

How can the screen saver  for windows 7 use photographs direct from the storage hard drive?  or will he have to copy all his photographs onto his boot drive  to facilitate this.

Thanking you in anticipation of your help.

RIGHT click an empty spot on the desktop.
Choose Personalize.
Choose Screensaver.

Click the drop down arrow under Screensaver, select Photo Gallery.

A preview will be shown in the box. Since this will be from the default setting, pictures on the C drive, he will need to click Settings/Browse in order to choose the storage drive pictures folder.

After he does that, click Save.

If he does not want to use all the photos, he can create a folder and copy the photos he does want to use to that folder. He can then navigate to that folder using the method I described.

One can also select from which drive & folder the pictures should be taken to be displayed/used for the screensaver.

It's the basic thing to know while using your computer. How come you don't know this kind of thing.

Well not a big issue, I hope you are a new user.

Dear Natalie, thank you for your comment.
I am 92 years of age, I fought in both World wars and worked until I had some major illnesses.
Yes, I am a new user and I resent being lectured too by an upstart like you.
You seem very pretty in your picture, it is unfortunate that the content of your brain and your attitude to the elderly is lacking.
I wish you well in your life, or more to the point.....................get a life and stop being an *******.
Have a good day.
