    I have no idea what you're talking about. The bubble screen saver is the same in Windows 10 (see screenshot).

    Only in preview mode. It is different than 7 when it runs by itself. It runs with an opaque background.

    In Windows 10 I see my desktop. There is no opaque background. :confused:

    my last big fat tube monitor went to garbage many years ago though. What is the need for a screen saver with LED screens or other flat monitors? Nothing gets burned into the matrix screen any more

    Yes PD, there is no reason to have a screen saver anymore unless they have a CRT. But I guess for people who do want to see it for other reasons from the need for one, was nice of dhjohns to post it.

    You are absolutely right! It is just for show, and to prove it can be done.

    I am sure Microsoft will do away with it as soon as the classic Control Panel is completely removed from Windows 10.
