This page is about the screensavers bundled with Windows over the years. Microsoft released a standalone program called IdleWild to add screensavers to Windows 3, but, starting with Windows 95, they started bundling them directly into their OS.


Example Name OS Description Opinion

Windows Screensaver - Mystify Your Mind.png Mystify Your Mind Windows 95 2D polygons bounce around the screen and fade colors. Based on "Dancing Lines" from IdleWild. 2 - Simple, but mildly zen.
