I restarted my computer and the S@H screen saver went away. How do I get it back?

If it was after the latest Win10 major update, it might have been disabled.
Screen savers haven't been of use for a few years no & Microsoft have started to remove that functionality- apparently if you use a Desktop Theme, screen savers are now disabled. In the future they may be killed off completely. They would prefer people to use the Lock Screen.
