Use your My Pictures folder as a screensaver

Here's a novel idea for a screensaver from Parent Hacks: use your My Pictures folder (or wherever you store your digital photos on your machine) as the source for your screensaver. Here's how it works with Windows XP:

  • Click on the Start Menu, then Control Panel
  • Double-click on Display
  • Find the Screensaver tab, and choose "My Picture Slideshow."
  • By default, this points to your My Pictures folder, but you can point it anywhere you want.
  • When finished, click OK
