an executable ? i think if you copy the *.exe to *.scr (keeping the
original *.exe file) to the same directory and the right click on the
new *.scr file and select install it should work. feel free to correct
me if i am wrong.

Hi,

You can use the 'My Pictures' screensaver which ships as a screensaver with Windows XP. You can
select any folder to display the images and you can set your specific picture as the only one in one
particular folder. This way, only that picture would be displayed by the screensaver.

Thanks for your response and that another person, but, by my not being too
computer savvy, am unable to appreciate the knowledgeable responses. I Have
a group of pictures in "My documents". How and where do I send them to show
up as screensavers. Thanks again

Hello,

Right click on an empty space on the desktop and select properties. Flip to the screensaver tab and
select the 'My pictures slideshow' screensaver. Hit 'settings' after this and select 'My documents'
as the source of pictures for the screensaver. Ok your way out. Now this screensaver will display
your pictures in 'My documents' and its subfolders.
