With technology constantly advancing, you can now customize just about every aspect of your computer, including the screen saver. You can choose what pictures you would like to run when your screen saver begins and how frequently they display across the screen. However, if you want a change of pace and are tired of your current screen saver, remove pictures from the screen saver list with a few clicks of your mouse.

Step 1

Right-click an empty space on your desktop. A menu will appear.

Step 2

Click “Personalize” in the menu. A new window will open.

Step 3

Click on the third item in the window, which reads “Screen Saver.” A new smaller window will open. This is the screen saver window. A list will appear with all the possibilities for your screen saver. This list will include your pictures.

Right-click the picture's name you wish to remove from the screen saver list. A small menu will appear. Click on “Delete” in this menu. The file will disappear from the screen saver list.
