How To Enable Screen Saver In Windows 10


A Screensaver is a computer software program that blanks the screen or fills it with moving images or patterns when the computer is not in use. The original purpose of screensavers was to prevent phosphor burn-in on CRT. Though modern monitors are not susceptible to this issue, Screensavers are still used for other decorative/entertainment purposes.
The monitors and flat panel displays used today no longer suffer from burn-in issues found with older CRT monitors. However, screen savers are still used for their aesthetic value and to password protect a computer when the user is away from the keyboard. As screensavers are generally expected to activate when users are away from their Computer/Laptop, many screensavers can be configured to ask users for a password before permitting the user to resume work. This is a basic security measure against another person accessing the Computer/Laptop while the user is away from the Computer.
Windows comes with six built-in screen savers that you can select.
