What browser does Live Screensaver Creator use?

Live Screensaver Creator uses WebBrowser Control based on Internet Explorer.

Starting from version 21.1 we are going to support Microsoft Edge WebView2 Control.

Created screensaver will try to use Microsoft Edge instead of Internet Explorer as the rendering engine, if available.

This requires WebView2 Runtime being installed on computer where screensaver is deployed. Microsoft plans to ship it with future releases of Windows. For now it is bundled with Microsoft 365 Apps.

We recommend manually installing Microsoft Edge WebView2 Runtime using the link: https://developer.microsoft.com/microsoft-edge/webview2/#download-section

Otherwise screensaver would use Internet Explorer as the rendering engine.

To check what rendering engine screensaver uses:

  • On computer where Live Screensaver Creator is installed: Open the app, click “About” button at the bottom, then click “Browser engine” button at the bottom
  • On computer where screensaver will be deployed: Use /engine switch when starting screensaver, e.g. test.scr /engine
