    I gave a lot of my co-workers the Flag wallpaper below and they all loved it. Some have asked is there a screen saver version of it (or something close) waving in the wind?

    I’m not sure if there are any American Flag Screen Saver but here is a quick fix. In the Screen Saver Menu set the Screen Save to “3D Flying Objects”. Click on “Settings”. Then click on “Textures” and find the Flag picture.

    Andrew,
    Thanks for the suggestion. That will have to do for now. I am going to use that for now. I hope someone here still comes up with a better one.

    Step one: save the flag image at the top of the page (right click, choose save picture as). Should save as usflag.gif
    Step two: open the flag in an image edior, and save it as a bitmap (bonus: if you have decent image program (I suggest the free Lview Pro), flip the flag left to right so the stars are on the right)
    Step Three: Go to screen saver, choose 3D Flying Objects. Go to settings, pull down and pick textured flag. Select a texture, using the usflag.bmp file.
    It will use this flag from the top of the page, it looks really good (especially if you flip the flag left to right).
