    Unlike Windows XP I can't find a way to display the file name of the jpg being displayed when using Photos as my screen saver. Can any one let me know how its done?

    Hello, Welcome to Windows7Forums.com :)
    Unfortunately, this settings has been removed from the default photo screensaver.

    However, it may be available in Windows Live Photo Gallery.
    www.download.live.com
    This program is a great picture manager/editor and has a screensaver similar to the default one in Windows 7.
    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Mitchell_A but the screen saver options in Live Photo Gallery gives you exactly the same options as the standard screen saver within Control Panel.:(

    Hm..
    We definitely need to find a 3rd party screensaver then..
    Actually IF you can get on a Windos XP machine, and find the photo screensaver in your Windows/system32 folder, and copy it over to the Windows 7 machine, it may work.

    You might just be able to grab it by searching on Google.
