    More ridiculous change for change sake. I don't get why people have to fix things that aren't broken.

    its only a screen saver function ,whats the big deal ,its not like a person is gonna sit watching the bubbles and hate the solid screen and the activity behind the bubbles [old way it worked]is frozen to when the screen saver starts .
    just saying ,i know its to each there own

    Hehe, you are probably right, my friend

    Thanks for the interpretation... Hope that's what Rickkins really meant anyway.

    I don't consider it broke something ,seem more like a safety feature ,I think .
    I personally see no need for a screen save ,I set my to turn off after 10 minutes ,and have been doing so for many years now
    I'm sorry, I don't see it as anything but annoying. I've been running screensavers in Windows since their inception and I don't see any need for this imaginary "safety" issue. If anyone from Microsoft is reading these, fix the screensavers back to the way they were, or at least give us the option of doing it ourselves.

    Frankly I am quite tired of Microsoft making windows second guess everything I want to do. If there are really people out there so fearful or incapable that they need a guided hand for every little thing they do then Microsoft needs to either offer two kinds of OS or give the rest of us the option to run our computers as we like.

    Yes, this particular issue is minor but still annoying and just indicative of how much windows tries to "protect" us from ourselves.

The only problem I have with this is..........well.......you might have to go to your screensaver settings and changed the minutes to something higher than a minute, since there's a slight delay in time.

    For example: I changed the screensaver minutes to 10 minutes and the bubbles showed up like expected after a few minutes.

    Thank you so much.

    Some people here don't bother to say thank you.

    It's very nice to hear it said.
