Screensaver vs. Wallpaper

| | Comments (2)
Somewhere along the way people go confused and started referring to their computer's desktop wallpaper as the screensaver. I tried correcting this for awhile, but the rate of spread of this misinformed naming seems to be increasing. In a few years I will be the one that is incorrect. Hmm.


wow plz help me I do not know the difference what is screensaver vs wallpaper?

Wallpaper is the image / background / color behind your icons on your desktop.

Screensaver is the full screen (usually) animated mode your computer goes into after being idle for some amount of minutes.
