What are SCR files and how to open them

Are you having problems opening a SCR file or are you simply curious about its contents? We're here to explain the properties of these files and provide you with software that can open or handle your SCR files.

What is a SCR file?

SCR files have multiple uses, and Windows Screen Saver is one of them. Read more about the other uses further down the page.

Windows Screen Saver

These screensaver files are used by Windows for energy-saving and screen protection purposes. Windows screensavers were originally created to prolong the life of CRT and plasma display monitors.

If a screensaver has been set by the user through the display properties of Windows, then the system will automatically activate the user's chosen screensaver when the Windows computer has been idle for a certain time. This is performed so as to minimize the power consumption levels of these display devices and to avoid "burn-in" on old CRT monitors, where the display could be damaged if the same content was displayed for a long period of time. Screensavers solved this by displaying random content.

Screensavers also allow users to secure the Windows desktop. A Windows screensaver can be configured to be protected by a password. Other options like setting a fixed number of idle minutes before the chosen screensaver is activated are available through the display properties of Windows.
