What is a scr file?

SCR is an extension for script files associated with Screen Savers.  An SCR file is an executable file that can run independently on a computer with a Windows operating system. The file contains commands to run vector graphic images, text and animations on screen without requiring the installation of any additional programs. Screensavers using the SCR file extension saved in the Windows Operating System can be run from the Display menu as a View option. The SCR file format is a relatively small-sized file and is portable and thus convenient for e-mail transfer. While an SCR file can be opened on its own, it is viewable and editable in text editing programs in not only Windows Operating Systems but also other computer operating systems with text editing programs.  Other examples of program files are CFOR and H.
