I have just purchased a Dell PC, Inspiron 660s Series, and have not been able to determine if it allows a photo screen saver. I have searched all areas with Dell, and other web sites and cannot find an answer.

I thought perhaps you could help me with this question.

I am going to be very disappointed if there is no way to apply the favorite screen saver.

Dear Frances,

You must have a new Windows 8 Computer. Here is how to set up the photo screensaver:

1. Right Click on a blank spot on your desktop, and click on, “Personalize” in the context menu.

2. In the lower-right corner of the Personalization window, click on “Screen Saver”.

3. In the screen saver window, click on the drop down list and select, “Photos”.

4. Click the “OK” button at the bottom of the window to save your changes and close the dialog box.
