Screensaver problem with multi monitor setup in Windows 10

Hi,

Scenario 1:
- I set the screensaver to apply for monitor 2 & 3.
- I un-thick the "Use Preview Mode for this screen saver" on the main monitor
- Start screensaver
Main monitor screen goes black but the mouse is still visible and active, but it can't turn off the screensaver unless clicking on the 2nd or 3rd monitor screen.

Scenario 2:
- I set the screensaver to apply for monitor 2 & 3.
- I thick the "Use Preview Mode for this screen saver" on the main monitor
- Start screensaver
Main monitor screen goes black completely with no mouse visible and screens wake up if I click.

This suggest to me that it is Windows 10 doing something, but was hoping someone here might know what, and how to stop it from happening...

Thanks for looking...

Are you trying to make it so that monitor 1 is still usable while the other 2 are running the screen savers?

Ah ok, this isn't possible at the moment, but it is currently on our feature request list, so I've added your vote to it. We'll be sure to let you know if/when we're able to implement it in the future.

Thanks!

Has the functionality mentioned in this post to make it so that monitor 1 is still usable while the other 2 are running the screen savers been added as yet?

Thank you all!

Never mind. See how I can do it, using your wallpaper settings. Awesome guys!

Thanks again!

Daniel, I am new to this program.

Can you explain how using the wallpaper settings can accomplish setting one screen into screensaver, or black and the other stays active?

I dont want to work with the screen saver on, but screen 2 shows a aida64 sensorpanel, that I want to keep up at all times.

@Don: There isn't a way to make it only run on monitor 1 while leaving monitor 2 in regular use. I will add your vote to the feature request for this.

Thanks!

I'm wondering if this is possible yet? "trying to make it so that monitor 1 is still usable while the other 2 are running the screen savers"

Is this something that is being worked on? Proposed for a later date to be worked on? I've searched quite a bit on how to do what the OP is asking for and can't find a solution. Thanks for quick response.
