Question XP Screen Savers

Hi, all. This is not a priority, so please continue sorting out the members with severe problems. I would just like some information on how to convert images (pictures within Word documents, avi's, gif's, tiff's & etc) into a screen saver format, usable by XP.

Thanks, Pete

A Google search for how to make xp screensavers yielded 2,610,000 results. That's probably where to start.

If you just want it as a screensaver for your own PC, XP comes with a "My Pictures Slideshow" screensaver, which will do a slideshow of all the compatible pictures in a folder of choice (My Documents\My Pictures is only a default). If you extract the images from the Word doc into separate image files (which you would need to do anyway with any other customizable screensaver) it would be easier to just use that.
