On older versions of the Windows operating system, Microsoft introduced a set of screen savers. Screen Savers were introduced in the very old versions of the Windows operating system to avoid screen burn-in in CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) displays.

Although we don’t use CRT monitors these days, screen savers now feel irrelevant. However, the thing is that Microsoft included the Screensavers options even in the latest release of Windows, i.e., Windows 11.

Many users still prefer to apply Screensavers on their LCD or LED screen. So, if you are using the latest version of Windows 11 and wish to apply Screensaver on your computer, you are reading the right article.

  1. I have an awesome screen saver I’ve used for years on Windows 7 (yup, I’m one of those people still using that), that displays the movie trailers in my WMV folder as my screen saver. Can I use my own screen saver with Windows 11 (basically displaying my own photos or video files)?
