    Enable screen saver in Win7

    Hi. I'm on a Win7 Enterprise x64 machine and have been trying to enable the screensaver on the system for a few days now. This helped at least get the Screen Saver Settings dialog to display: http://devharbor.blogspot.com/2011/0...windows-7.html

    But now the screensaver is set to "Blank" in the dropdown and all its options are greyed out. Is there a registry setting that controls this? I have a ton of pictures that I've used as my screensaver in the past and would like to have on this machine as well, so your help is much appreciated. Thank you

    A follow-up question: How do you enable the "Wait" time, which is also greyed out? Thanks.

    Glad I could help. Sometimes it's a matter of using the right search phrases in Google to find what you need. Enjoy your Win 7.
