Moving the mouse to a corner of the screen may activate the screen saver in Windows 95. This may occur even if the specific screen saver you are using does not have a "hot corner" enabled or does not have a "hot corner" feature.


The screen savers included with Microsoft Plus! have "hot corner" settings that remain active even if you are not using the screen saver in which you enabled the "hot corner" setting.


To enable or disable the "hot corner" settings, follow these steps:
  1. In Control Panel, double-click the Display icon.
  2. Click the Screen Saver tab.
  3. In the Screen Saver box, click any Microsoft Plus! screen saver, and then click Settings.
  4. On the General tab, enable or disable the "hot corner" feature by clicking each corner, and then clicking Default, Now, or Never on the menu that appears.
  5. Click OK, and then click OK.
The "hot corner" settings you choose apply to all the Microsoft Plus! screen savers, as well as to other screen savers in Windows 95.
