52 Projects, Week 19, Photo Screen Saver


Recent complexity in our lives necessitated a simple project last week, which I'm once again late in posting. But this simple project is bringing me a lot of joy.

This is a relatively simple process, to set up your screensaver to scroll through the photos on your hard drive.
 Click Choose Screen Saver.
In Windows XP, go to Control Panel, then Appearances and Themes.

In the window that opens up, click on the Screen Saver drop down menu (right next to the settings button). From there, selecy My Pictures Screen Saver.

That's pretty much it, except that you need to make sure that your photos are actually stored in My Pictures.

I'm really loving this! I get to see photos from the past 10 years or so that I don't often have time to sit down and look through. Everything from Helena as an infant forward, to photos of our SD house before and after, to pictures of other loved ones, near, far and some who have passed on.
