Falling in Love With More Than One Screensaver: The Fun Part

By: Roman Kramar

Having from five to ten and more favorite screensavers is
cool. But how do you enjoy them all in a straightforward and
convenient way? Draw the power you need from the little yet
useful tools discussed in this article!

As you remember, earlier in my article What to Do if You
Fall in Love With More Than One Screensaver we discussed the
standard way of switching between multiple screensavers.
Having that possibility is a pleasure indeed. Just imagine
that your operating system doesn't let you easily vary
screensavers to suit your mood. You'd be forced to uninstall
the installed screensaver, and then install a new one.
Avoiding this effort would lead you to a fabulous triumph of
utter boredom! Thankfully, it's not the case. Furthermore,
as you will see, there are tools that make switching between
your favorite screensavers a breeze.

As strange as it may sound, computers were created to make
our lives easier. Really, they are very good at automating
repeating and boring tasks. And now is the very moment to
remind them of that.

Imagine your innermost dream. You just sit doing nothing and
your computer, your dutiful servant, takes care of your
problem without your slightest intervention. All what is
left to you is to enjoy the fruits of its labor. Nice, huh?
Ta-da! Enter Random Screensaver!

If you have never heard about Random Screensaver, fear not!
"Random" here has nothing to do with a random and
unpredictable mess on your screen. It's the first little
tool that will help you drive away the boredom of manually
switching between your favorite screensavers.

The idea behind the tool is simple yet very useful.

Screensaver is not a screensaver in the first place. It
wears this disguise to take control each time the operating
system says it's a perfect moment to start the screensaver.
Once in control, the tool looks at the list of available
screensavers and asks a random performer from the list to
start its show.

That's it! If you install Random Screensaver, you will never
have to switch your savers manually. Each time a different
screensaver will start. All your favorites will get a
regular outing!

Oh! I've forgotten to tell you the most important thing.
Random Screensaver is completely free, and you can download
it from this page:


There you will find two different versions: "Quick download"
and "Full installation." The first one is a bare screensaver
file and is very small. The second is a self-extracting
installation package that will do all the installation work
for you, but it's much bigger. If you don't want to waste
your time downloading the bigger package, it's time to
recall my previous article What You Should Know About
Installing Screensavers. There you can get the knowledge
needed to install the bare screensaver file.

Now that we have solved our primary problem, I can hear some
of my readers start grumbling. If you are one of them, I
know what's bothering you. Remember in the beginning of this
article I said how bad it would be if you could not match
your mood with running screensavers? But Random Screensaver
knows nothing about your feelings. It simply runs a random
screensaver. Well, there still is a cure for those of you
who can't stand this disease.

The second tool I would like to tell you about is AllSaver!
Although not free, it's a perfect cure for the second
problem. It works much like Random Screensaver, but in
addition to running a random show, it lets you tell exactly
which screensavers you would like to see. So, if you feel
today is a good day for just five of your favorite savers,
and other twenty of them should rest, you can have it this
way! Simply add those five to the list, and it's done!

But wait, there's even more to please you! AllSaver! has one
unique feature. It makes it possible to run two or four of
your favorites at the same time! You select how many
screensavers to run, and AllSaver! splits the screen as
needed, providing the space for all running screensavers.

If you can't wait to see it in action, you can download this
amazing tool using this link:


Use these tools, and say "no" to the boredom of seeing one
and only screensaver! Variety is a good thing. Have fun!
