What is SCR file?

A .SCR file, also known as the Screensaver file, is an executable file that is stored in the Windows or the System directory. The file will be automatically executed when the computer is inactive for several minutes as per customization settings provided in the control panel. The SCR file can be configured to display various screen settings including a slide-shows, black screen, vector graphics to draw designs, images, text, video sequence, audio and sound effects, or a combination of these settings.   

Programs that support SCR file

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the SCR file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the SCR file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the SCR file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the SCR file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the SCR file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the SCR file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
