After a hot summer when we had fun either at the seaside or in the mountainside, comes autumn, a colorful yet melancholic season. This period can inspire some to read a good book or paint, while it rains outside, and make others feel sentimental.
If you want to get into that warm yet windy feeling directly on your desktop, Autumn Time Screensaver might be a good choice. It comes with a collection of 15 amazing and high-quality autumn landscapes, along with soothing background sounds, and falling leaves.
The setup doesn't come with any ads offers, nor requires additional components to run, like other similar tools. However, it does put a separate desktop icon that sends you to the developer's webpage to download more screensavers.
Once the installation is complete, the app is automatically integrated into the Windows Screensaver window, where you can directly apply it as your default screensaver or customize its properties to fit your preferences.
The configuration panel is divided into six distinct tabs, namely general, position, effects, sound, behavior, and features. From the first tab, you can set the display duration of each image, expressed in seconds, the item order (sequential, random, shuffle), and enable the tool to run at startup.
Plus, you have the option to change the pictures's position on the screen (e.g. fill, fit, stretch), and choose what effects should be played, from slide, door close, iris, unfold, horizontal, and so on. The tool lets you pick the display effects between pan and zoom,and rotate and zoom, as well as adjust the transition speed (smooth, fast).
A nice addition is the ability to create your own music playlist to accompany the slideshow. What's more, you can choose what actions should trigger the screensaver exit, like mouse move, button click, ESC key, or any other keyboard button. From the last tab, you can disable the digital clock, calendar, and labels.
Compared to other screensaver tools we've come across in our reviews, Autumn Time Screensaver is a feature-rich and interactive screensaver, that comes packed with an extensive collection of beautiful autumn photos, background music, and falling leaves.
