We recently received a great question from Bonnie, who emailed from Palm Bay, FL. Here’s what she asked:
“Where can I find safe, free screen savers for my laptop?”
There are several websites where you can get a safe and free screensaver for your laptop, and you must use a safe and reputable website.
Pexels for your screensaver ( )
Pexels is a free stock website that has thousands of pictures available that are completely free and safe to download. You can go to pexels.com and simply type in screen saver in the search bar at the top of the website. When you click on a photo, a big green button will be in the top right corner. Click the downward arrow to select the size you want to download, and then click Download Selected Size. You can then go to your Downloads folder on your computer and follow the steps to set up your new screensaver.
Wallstock are options ( )
WallpaperStock gives you thousands of free options for different screen-saver designs. It gives all kinds of sizes and even ranges from “normal” to widescreen to HD and more. They give lots of categories to choose from, like “female celebrities” and “aircrafts / planes,” and they even give you the option of entering your email address to receive the top 10 wallpapers each week.
HD Wallpapers updates its website with new wallpapers every snide day, so your options are endless. The website has over 20 different categories of wallpapers, including the site’s latest, featured, and popular wallpapers. Plus, when you find a wallpaper you want to download, you can choose a specific device and resolution for your wallpaper so that it fits exactly how you want it to.
