Hello,

A few years ago an office computer I worked on had an icon that started the screen saver. If someone came by and you didn't want them to see your display you clicked the icon and the screen saver came on.

Any information on finding this again will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Bob

I just gave this a shot.

Go to Start>Search

Search in C:\Windows\System32 (or %systemroot%\system32) for *.scr

Find your favorite screen saver in the list.

Right Click (hold) and drag to your desktop and select "Create Shortcut Here"


I'd really like to be able to make a hot corner like OSX has!
