Microsoft added a library of screen savers to older versions of the Windows operating system. To avoid screen burn-in on CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) displays, Screen Savers were introduced in early versions of the Windows operating system.

Despite the fact that we no longer use CRT monitors, screen savers have become obsolete. However, even in the most recent version of Windows, Windows 11, Microsoft included the Screensavers options.

Many people still like to use screensavers on their LCD or LED monitors. So, if you’re using Windows 11 and want to install a screensaver on your computer, you’ve come to the perfect place.
