Not saving last picture as wallpaper in windows 10

Postby Melscott30 » Tue May 16, 2017 10:32 pm

No matter what I do, I cannot get gphotoshow screensaver (free version) to save the last picture shown, as wallpaper. I don't know if maybe I have to enable or disable something in windows or not, but it just doesn't work !!!!!

I have also downloaded and installed Control Screen Saver version 1.7.1

Can you please help?

Thanks

Melvyn Scott.

Hello,
this issue is caused by the security constraints enforced by Windows 10 (and 8.1), a screen saver has no way to interact with user desktop so there is no way for a screen saver to set a wallpaper.
gPhotoShow Pro implements a workaround that needs a special version of ControlSS utility running on the user desktop, this version of ControlSS is installed together with gPhotoShow Pro.
