    Screensaver Dilemma

    I have a photograph saved on my hard drive that I would like to be my (motionless) screensaver -- not wallpaper. In other words, I want this picture to appear on my screen only when a screensaver would normally kick in. How can I do this? I tried "Save As" a .scr file in both the Windows and WindowsSystem directory and neither works. Thanks.

    Re: Screensaver Dilemma

    Thanks for the reply, Dave. What you referred me to will inded work, but I was hoping to be able to accomplish my goal within Windows without having to buy additional software. Just want a pic of the granddaughter on the screen when I'm away from the desktop, but don't want her as wallpaper because then I can't see the icons. Any other ideas? Thanks.
