    My office desktop and my laptop both have the latest version of E@H. However, they each are running different screensavers. The laptop has the global view (red dots, etc.) but the desktop only has the new BOINC logo (it appears and reappears with E@H stats).

    Sometimes I want the global view so how do I set the screensaver to the one I want (global view)?

      AFAIK the generic BOINC logo screensaver is a "fallback" sort of screensaver that gets activated when there is a problem (e.g. graphics card driver incompatibility) with the science app screen-saver. The E@H screensaver is built with OpenGL, so it might be a good idea to check OpenGL related settings of your GFX driver.

        Mess with the driver? No thanks. I'll just let it do whatever it wants.

        Thanks for the reply! :)
