Why Buy Windows Screensavers When You Can Find Free Ones Online?
The simple answer is that Uscenes screensavers (or “screen savers” as Microsoft spells them) are higher quality. Read on to find out more, or start browsing —> Windows aquarium screensavers or Windows nature screensavers.
Real Scenes Filmed in High Resolution 4K Ultra HD
Most of our screensavers were filmed in 4K UHD (over 100), and the rest in Full HD (60). This high resolution means that the footage looks great even on large high resolution monitors. It isn’t worth risking downloading free options as they could come with harmful software, you will probably be added to a spammy email marketing list and the footage itself is probably a low resolution loop just a couple of seconds long.
Uscenes has been filming and selling Windows screensavers since 2013 and we haven’t had a single security issue in all that time.
Download a 4K screensaver, Windows 10 compatible
Watch our most popular 4K aquarium screensaver download below. To get the best quality click on the settings icon and select 2160p 4K for the highest Ultra HD resolution. This is premium quality footage, with a soothing surround sound audio track made up of underwater sounds.
We created this aquarium and can reveal that it cost around $14,000 to build. Plus thousands more to maintain. The cost to you is just $5 for the Full HD version, or $7 to download the 4K UHD version.
4K is 4 times bigger than Full HD 1080p, which is 4 times bigger than Standard 720p HD. Free screensavers are tiny file sizes and low resolution. We compress our footage to be reasonable file sizes, whilst maintaining the quality needed for our higher resolution.
Our Windows screensavers are 3 minutes long and loop seamlessly. The camera stays still, so you barely notice when the screensaver repeats every few minutes. Free screensavers are typically just a few seconds long. 3 minutes is a good length to give you a varied experience, which is especially important for our aquarium screensavers.
Premium Surround Sound Windows Screensavers
Our 4K Windows screensavers include a bespoke surround sound audio track to make you feel relaxed. The aquariums have calming underwater sounds. The fireplaces have real recordings of actual fireplaces. The nature scenes have sounds such as gently flowing water, subtle birds in the distance and soft breezes in the trees.
Every video screensaver filmed in 4K resolution (100) has 5.1 surround sound. We created special audio tracks to make the screensavers immersive. The older Full HD screensavers (60) have sound from the scene itself. Don’t sleep on the older ones as we have some gems worth buying in 2023, such as the Living Coral Aquarium.
Advanced “Windows Screen Saver” Options
The most important setting is volume. You can mute the volume or adjust it independently to your PC’s main volume. If you use more than one monitor, you can choose which ones the video shows on. The video will not stretch across monitors, so you may just want to have it play on your biggest screen.
Uscenes screensavers couldn’t be easier to install. They download in a minute or two. Then you just click on the install file. This opens the “Windows Screen Saver” Options pop-up on your computer. You will see our screensavers in the list with the ones already on your PC. You can easily click on a different name and have as many as you like installed.
They are simple to use just like normal screensavers. We have over 150 screensavers for Windows 10. From stunning aquariums to calming scenery, there is something for everyone in our library of real, non animated screen saver videos.
Safe and Secure Downloads + Privacy Protected
In 9+ years of selling screensaver downloads, we have not had a single issue with security. All our screensavers are free from malware, viruses or anything else that could harm your PC or infringe on your privacy.
You are buying peace of mind – a simple screen saver file – nothing more. There is nothing extra like tracking, cookies, spyware.
We don’t do email marketing. The only time you will receive an email is when you make a purchase: you will be sent a confirmation email with the download link in. You will also be shown the download link as soon as you have paid. You can also login anytime to access your downloads.
Our files are stored with Amazon. We have been on Amazon Web Servers since 2013, without a since issue. We also use Amazon CloudFront which helps increase download speeds.

Our best aquarium screensaver for Windows is Coral Garden. It is extremely popular as the aquarium was build inspired by the movie Finding Nemo. This means lots of colorful tropical fish and real living corals. It was filmed in 4K Ultra HD resolution. This is the most popular of all our Windows screensavers.

Marine Aquarium Screensaver Windows
Our most popular marine aquarium screensaver for Windows users that have small screens is Living Coral Aquarium. This was our most popular fish tank when we only filmed in 1080p Full HD resolution. The resolution is 4 times smaller than 4K, but it isn’t noticeable on low resolution screens and small screens, such as the standard laptop screen sizes. Click here if you want to try our sample clips to compare the 4K and HD resolutions.
Fireplace Screensaver for Windows
Our best fireplace screensaver is 4K Fireplace. One of our first filmed in 4K with 5.1 surround sounds of a crackling log fire. It is also available in Full HD. This crackling fire video is homely and fills your screen with flames. Very popular in winter months as it somehow makes rooms feel warmer. When we were only filming in Full HD, we had a recording of the same fireplace, which was then the most popular one too. It is called Brass Fireplace, but the Full HD version of 4K Fireplace may still be higher quality, as it is downscaled from 4K to Full HD resolution.
Windows Christmas Screensavers
Any of our fireplace videos are good for Xmas time. But we have one Christmas Fireplace screensaver with festive decorations, which you may prefer. This is a nice gas fireplace, but you may prefer one of our others if you want real burning wood logs.
Nature and Scenery Windows Screensaver Downloads
Our nature screensavers have been filmed all over the world. It is difficult to pick one as they are so varied. We have waterfalls, countryside, beaches, animals and the collection includes a popular night time cityscape screensaver, overlooking a marina with water reflections from the sky line.
Beach Screensavers for Windows
We have a few really stunning beaches. Our favorite is Tropical Vista which features a palm tree, white sand beach and a sandbank. We also love the sweeping white sand and tropical blue waters in Idyllic Beach.
Uscenes has been filming relaxing scenes to use as TV and PC screensavers since 2013. In 2015 we upgraded from Full HD (FHD) resolution to 4K (UHD) resolution.
We are known for having the best screensavers for fish lovers, having visited many of the top aquariums in the world, and our most popular screensaver is a recording of one we built.
Also, we love to travel, which is why there is a wide range of nature scenes too- think of them as scenic windows to help you feel relaxed.
One half of the Uscenes team started a few years before 2013; as a fireplace screensaver service, so we naturally have a selection of fire screen savers, which are popular in winter and at Christmas.
