Does anyone know when or how to get more choices for a screensaver for Windows 10? The current choices are SOOOO boring!

What do you mean?  You can create your own pictureshow by storing whatever you want in Windows\Web\Wallpaper, same as in Win7.  You have to set it to Slideshow in Personalize (again, same as Win7).  I just copied all the pictures I like into that directory, and then set the screensaver options for time, stretch, etc. (again, same as Win7).

 

Unless I misunderstand you...

I don't want pictures from my photos- I want screensavers. Windows used to have a lot of them- and you could get more online - now there are only about 5 choices on WIN 10!

Dunno about W10, but try Linux, then it's screensavers

 

They are AMAZING - and have a good deal of intelligence about them - some based on scientific formulas, chaos theory, geometrical progressions - VERY COOL !

Windoze .. LOL ..

 

Which reminds me, the etymology of the word 'window' is wind hole, ie, an unglazed hole in a wall or roof where lots of wind came through.

 

Windows .. wind holes .. Yep, plenty of 'em. Very apt.

 

Perhaps they can come up with some screensavers featuring wind holes !
