Windows operating system ships with a bunch of good screen savers. Users who are bored of the default set of screen savers could either install new screen savers or tweak the default screen savers with the help of tweaking tools such as Screen Saver Editor and Idle Time Edit.
If you’re bored of screen savers that Windows ships with, then there are plenty of good screen savers around. While most aren’t inspiring, there are a quite a few quality screen savers. In the past, we covered a couple of good screen savers for Windows operating system. In fact, a little over a year go, we covered seven beautiful screen savers available for Windows. This time around, we have an awesome screen saver to share with you.
Fliqlo is a free screen saver that helps you make your PC’s screen look like a flip-style clock.
Installing the screen saver is fairly simple. Download the zip file from the developer’s page, extract the zip file onto the desktop, double-click on the executable file to install it. Finally, right-click on desktop, click Personalize, click Screen Saver option, select Fliqlo from the drop-down menu and then click Apply button to apply the newly installed screen saver.
There are a few shortfalls to this screensaver. First, there are no options to choose the font and font color. However, you can change the size of the default font and switch between 12-hour and 24-hour formats.
To change font size and format, first right-click on desktop, select Personalize, click Screen Saver option located at the bottom right to open Screen Saver Settings dialog, select Fliqlo from the drop-down menu and then click Settings.
While Fliqlo doesn’t offer much to customize the default look, it’s probably the best clock screen savers available for Windows. How to automatically rotate screen savers guide might also interest you.
I have followed your instructions to copy either .scr file to C:\Windows\Systems32 and then right click to choose “install”. However an error message stating that “this application could not be started”. Is something missing here?
Fliqlo is a nice screen saver that I’ve used for years until it stopped working because flash support was removed from Windows. Installed the new (2021) version from https://fliqlo.com/ but it is a bit cumbersome, I must say. It does not react to a mouse movement, and the new Fliqlo seems to need an internet connection to work.
Found a better implementation of the same clock here: https://github.com/phaselden/FlipIt. Download the .scr file from this page: https://github.com/phaselden/FlipIt/releases. Smaller, reacts to mouse movements, needs no internet connection.
For both versions: copy/move the .scr file to C:\Windows\SysWOW64 (for 64-bit Windows) or C:\Windows\System32 (for 32-bit Windows). You need administrator rights, so Windows asks for that in a pop up. Grant rights. Then right click on the file and select ‘install’.
