    You have to wait for however long you set your screen saver timer to. If you set your screen saver timer to two minutes (meaning it would come on after two minutes of inactivity on your computer), you have to wait two minutes.
    Thanks!

  • Screen savers were initially implemented to prevent images from being burned into a computer's display. This isn't a common problem on modern computers, making screen savers largely cosmetic at this point.
  • You can install a third-party screen saver by double-clicking its installation file (EXE), though in some cases you must first extract the screen saver file before doing so. You may also need to right-click the file and clickRun as administratoror right-click it and clickInstall; depending on the screen saver, you might have to click through some prompts after doing so.

Warnings

  • Be careful if you download a screen saver from online. Like any executable file, screen saver files can be used to install viruses.
  • Your computer's screen saver may eventually turn on if you don't move your mouse or press a key while watching a movie. To prevent this, either set the "Wait" time to well over an hour or consider disabling the screen saver temporarily.
