screen saver goes too fast

Vista Home premium 32-bit

I use my photos in the screensaver and I fixed it to slow, but it's still too fast.
Anyone know how I can slow down as you would in win xp


Hello tang258,

Take a look at this answer/tips from Michael Murphy, who could help you just below:

Looks like you're out of luck with Microsoft.

There are 3 rd Party slideshow screensaver downloads claiming to do this and that, but most of them are mounted virus and/or unnecessary
This is a response to a post about it:

Re: Settings Vista photo screensaver
Don't know. The settings for the screen saver are located under this key:

"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Photo.
Gallery\slide show\Screensaver.

but the values of 'Speed' seem to be 0, 1 or 2 (slow, medium, fast),
they are not in a few seconds.

Good luck

Hope this helps you. Let us know anyway. Make it a great day!

  • Printing multiple pages; going too fast and jams

    I have a HP 1200 laser printer and want to print 85 double-sided copies, printing page 1 and then put back copies through to page 2. The problem is that the printer goes too fast and jams of all other pages or two. I can't think of anyway to slow it down, or any other reason for the jam. It works fine on small jobs.

    Thanks for the information. I checked the "components", and they seem to be OK. I suspect that the problem may be the quality of the paper (dried, perhaps). I'll mark this as resolved.

  • An enemy following me around the screen, but not too fast

    Hi, I'm building apps to teach English but through games.

    I want an enemy BUG following me around but NOT TOO soon as I have small children of 5 years using it,

    It would be something like the details of my HERO character and to send the BUG.

    I use the POINT at the moment to send my HERO to where the mouse clicks.

    I could send the BUG there as well but using less x and y increments.

    It would be too heavy for the processor - too much going on with the music as well?

    still, do not remove:

    var speed: Number =. 99;

    public void onEnterFrame(event:Event):void {}

    var xDistance:Number = clickPoint.x - this.hero.x;

    var yDistance:Number = clickPoint.y - this.hero.y;

    If (Math.abs (xDistance) > 10) {}

    var angle: Number = Math.atan2 (yDistance, xDistance);

    This.Hero.x += v * Math.cos (angle);

    This.Hero.y += v * Math.sin (angle);

    } else {}

    this.hero.gotoAndPlay ("static");


    enemy1.x = speed * enemy1.x +(1-speed) * hero.x;

    enemy1.y = speed * enemy1.y +(1-speed) * hero.y;

    If {(clickPoint.x>=hero.x)}

    this.hero.gotoAndPlay ("right");

    trace (Math.ABS (xDistance));


    If {(this.hero.x>=clickPoint.x)}

    this.hero.gotoAndPlay ("left");

    trace (Math.ABS (xDistance));



  • Go to active windows and screen saver comes up.

    Original title: need more time

    My active pages are going and I get my screensaver, then I have to click back in my browser. I looked at my aid centres, nothing. I feel stupid like all out them, but can someone help me? God bless you.

    If mean you your screen saver "comes" too early, right-click on an empty area of your desktop, choose Properties, the screensaver tab and check your adjustments there.

    Click OK to save the settings and close the dialog box.

    If this isn't what you mean, you need to provide more details.

  • A bug? Reading Photoshop Action is too fast, after upgrade CS5 - CS6! My action does not work

    On a PC

    I upgraded to CS5 in CS6 (cloud) over the long weekend and I'm now facing a massive headache. Process actions that I use extensively for my work are all foxed by the simple problem reading action going too fast for the script on two documents to stand. I've tried everything I can think of, but the only thing that allows the action to progress substantially (as in previous versions of the software) is the step by step playback mode. It's too slow to use on an ongoing basis.

    The problem is caused by the following sequence

    Save as a document (on the desktop)

    Opened as a document - open that Camera Raw - after settings open in Photoshop

    Select all


    Closed - registration No.

    (PS automatically selects previous document)

    +++ Paste +++ command ERROR paste is not currently available

    This is where Photoshop choose the previous/underlying document before applying the Paste command. Since the upgrade its been trying to paste the Clipboard in the fraction of a second after the closure and by selecting the previous document and have reported no documents available to all. Slow down or if stop playback with step by step or stop and continue works around the problem but the workflow causes to slow down considerably.

    Is it possible to script a break during this time crucial one? Or is there a setting preferably I forgot it's breakage behaviour?

    This thread solved my problem

    This is a bug. The work around is to record a change in the speed of reading before and after the paste.

    Adobe would you want to fix this problem please?

    While you are, you would also look at "less than 50% of the pixels are selected," it would be really great if we could cancel this warning when batch processing of images and using measures.

    have a screen saver password photos.  As he passes, the screen goes black and stays black.  What can I do?

    I don't know what is causing this problem but would be
    suspicious, it is related to a corrupted or obsolete
    video driver.

    Might be interesting to try to reduce your graphics

    in the following article.

    How to put in back of graphics hardware acceleration
    (scroll down to: "If you are using Windows 2000 or XP")

    If they improve the question, you should look for the
    site Web of MFG. your video card
    a updated driver Win XP compatible video. Or...
    If your computer is a laptop... Search support
    site of the manufacturer of your computer.

    If you do not know the make and model of your
    Video adapter, see the documentation that
    supplied with the computer.

    Also you can find info on your video by driver
    go to Device Manager: you can launch
    By clicking Device Manager on... Start/run and
    type or copy / paste:
    And then press ENTER.

    Expand "Graphics cards" and right click
    the name of your graphics... then
    choose... Properties / tab pilot... FYI.

    You should find the make and model of your
    adapter display as well as the version of the driver.

    If the driver on the Web site is no longer
    current than you run...
    Download and install it. In addition, installation
    instructions that should be followed closely
    should be available on the support site.

    Once installed the new video driver... you
    can restore your full acceleration.

    Good luck...
