Enplug Screensaver for Windows


The Enplug ScreenSaver allows you to set your Enplug Content URL as your Windows 10 ScreenSaver. This feature can be accessed from any location, allowing even remote employees to view your Enplug content. 

For more information for setting up Content URLs, check out our support guide here.

Note: Every actively running instance of the ScreenSaver will require a license. If you have no available licenses on your account, you will not be able to view the content. 

After setup is completed, the Windows 10 computer will need access to the internet to function.
