After reading this good article you will know some important information about screensavers and their history. You will find out how screensavers are different from other applications and what advantages you'll have if you use them. If you have a laptop or a notebook you can also find useful things.

I wonder if you have ever asked about what screensavers are in fact. Because i did i made a little research and i am willing to share with you what i learned. If you split the word "screensavers" in to separate words it will result the words "screen" and "savers". So screensavers are some kind of applications that "saves your computer". So a screensaver can only mean something good for your computer. But the real question is what does exactly means? You must ask yourself if it will harm your screen or it will help it. You can find all this just by knowing the definition of the screensavers.

If you are curious and you search the net you will find a many definitions. But i will try to list the best of them in this article.

1. So a screensaver is some kind of a moving picture that appears on your screen if you haven't moved your mouse or didn't press any key for a period of time that you can set. Screensavers prevent screen damage that is caused when the same areas of light and dark are displayed for long periods of time.

2. A screensaver is a program that activates after a certain amount of time has passed with no keyboard or mouse activity and blanks the screen or display moving various objects across the screen; these are used to prevent your screen from getting "burn in". So i think that you are begriming to understand.

3. You can also call it an animated picture that you can program trough the display control panel. It will appear on the screen of your computer after a time that you can program has elapsed. The most important task of the screen saver is to reduce wear and the CRT(Cathode Ray Tube) that can receive damage if the same window is left for a long period of time.

So in conclusion after understanding the definitions of the screensavers you should understand the benefits and try to use one on your computer. You can find some tips about using screensavers in the second part of this article.
