"I hit something to improve my computer"

Something - - you can't even remember what it was?
You should always be aware of what you are doing!

Just download and reinstall the screensavers if they are third-party ones.
If they are provided with Windows, use the Windows installation disc to do a repair install.

You might do a system restore choosing a date from just before you 'hit something'. Likely the screen savers are still there but not showing up where you expect them.

Are yo saying that "all" your screen saver "files/backgrounds" have disappeared; or do you mean that you have simply lost the screen saver background you were using?

Hello, Bonnie. From your question, I gather that you are not the
NASA astronaut by that name.

We can't tell whether you have no idea where to go to select a screen
saver (it's on the same page as where you select a desktop background
"wallpaper" -- Right-click the desktop and click on "Personalize") or if all
the built-in Windows screen savers vanished, or if you had a special
screen saver (maybe one you downloaded) that has vanished, or what.

If you downloaded something, you most likely put the download in some
folder somewhere, and it is still there. If it isn't in your "Downloads"
library, then you must have specified some other location.

On the other hand, if you ran a program directly from a website which
installed screensavers, then you may need to go back to that website
and run it again. But it might be in your "Program Files" folder.
You can always look through it.
