Flux Screensaver

15 ratings

A mesmerizing screensaver inspired by something you may have seen on your friend’s aluminium laptop. Drift off into a sea of soothing colors while your computer idles.

Check out the web version for a preview flux.sandydoo.me!

✨ Features

  • The classic rainbow color scheme.
  • Support for ultrawides and multi-monitor widescreen setups.
  • A real-time fluid simulation running on the GPU. Not a video. Not a web app either.
  • Free updates!

⚙️ System Requirements

Flux is a real-time fluid simulation! It’ll run at 60fps on most integrated GPUs from the last decade, but it can be quite taxing. Some laptops may spin up their fans!

  • Windows 10 64-bit or later.
  • An x86_64 CPU. Basically, Intel and AMD CPUs. Tablets with ARM CPUs won’t work.

‼️ Known Issues

  • Windows 11 + HDR — a few people have reported that Windows 11 doesn’t automatically switch back into HDR mode after the screensaver. You can re-enable HDR with the windows + alt + B shortcut. I’m looking into workarounds.

How to install

  1. Download the screensaver. Save it somewhere where you can find it later, like your home folder.
  2. Right-click on the Flux.scr screensaver file.
  3. Click “Install”.
    On Windows 11: click “Show More Options” and then “Install”.

How to remove

Delete the Flux.scr file and Flux should disappear from the screensaver options.


Q: Can I change the colors?

A: Not yet, but I’m working on it :)

Q: Are future updates free?

A: Yes!
