    Randomize The Screen Savers?


    I use (and still use) a program called Desktop WallPaper Master (because clicking on its icon in the Taskbar changes the wallpaper right there and then). I have this program to set random wallpaper every time it applies new wallpaper.
    Then I noticed that this is built in Windows if you want to change the wallpaper randomly.. (but I still use the program because I can click it whenever I want to change the picture on-demand).

    Yet... why isn't there a feature to have random Screen Savers load every time the computer is idle? Whatever happened to that idea?

    Anywho, I found a program called ScreenMonkey (in which it works perfectly the way it should with randomizing the screen savers), yet it's not free.

    Is there a free one that you have actually tried and randomizes the screen savers?

    So after finding a few programs that do such of the above, I found a freeware program called:
    ScreenSaver Commander 1.3

    It does everything that I expected from a good program. Yet there is a little bug that Windows 8.1 seems to forget that I set this program's screen saver as the screen saver.
    For reference: To fix this issue, just keep setting this program as the screen saver, and eventually it sticks to being set as the screen saver. Don't know how it fixes itself, but it does so with persistence.

    Reason why I wanted this program was because I found a really cool bunch of screen savers at:
    Really Slick Screensavers

    Check out these ones; they're actually pretty good:
    Euphoria
    Solar Winds
    Flux
    Field Lines
    Flocks
    and one of my favorites: Cyclone
