Creating a Screensaver
first thing to do is go to your picture file
you only want pictures in this file that you want to appear on your screen saver
if you have pictures you do not want on your screen saver then create a separate file for them
in your picture file right click and select new and then select folder
drag and drop or cut and past any pictures you don't want in your screen saver and place in new folder
you can name your new folder when you create it or after you create it
when you create new folder the title box on the bottom will be in blue, simply type your new folder name
you can also change the name of this folder or any folder by placing your cursor on a folder and right clicking
then select rename
now we have to move this folder out of your picture file
simply drag and drop or cut and paste your new folder and place it were you would like it
to your document file or desktop ect...
you can create several folders like this by this process
you can create a vacation folder or family folder ect
place these individual folders in your document file
you can also create a new folder in your document file the same way
open document file right click, select new then select folder
drag and drop or copy and past all your individual picture files (vacation folder and family picture folder)into your new folder you named My Screen savers
now that you have your folders all set up in your document file
simply go to your document file open up your My Screen saver folder and drag and drop or cut and paste your selected folder to your picture folder
and if you have a folder already in your picture folder drag and drop or cut and paste that folder back to your My Screen saver file in your documents
wow now that we have all our folders created and you have selected one folder to your picture file
right click on your desk top and select properties or personalize
then select screen saver
a window will appear appear
select the drop down menu depending on what version operating system you have)it will say my pictures or windows live photo gallery ect...
click on this
