Years ago I saw a prog on a pc which could instantly activate a screensaver at the nudge of a mouse. Does anybody know of this and where I could obtain it please. We have occassions where staff may have confidential information on a screen when people walk into the office and an instantaneous blanking of the screen would be useful. TIA.
"instantly activate a screensaver at the nudge of a mouse" would infer that the programme you seen years ago made the mouse basically redundant except for the purpose of the screensaver? A bit pointless ain't it?
"having to double click a desktop shortcut is no quicker than hitting the minimise button." nor is it any quicker than raising your arm and nudging a mouse. (unless milliseconds count of course)
The only other option i can think of is to go to mouse properties and select maybe the wheel button or another (have five on mine) to minimize so you don't have to actually move the mouse pointer anywhere to activate..........
Jonny Tub......why be confused when you are a star? Your detective work was spot on. Setting the corner pixel size to max gives a much larger area to activate rather than the accuracy needed to hit the minimise button. Thanks for your help. CB.
Go into your C:\Windows\system32 folder and look for screen saver files which are, eg: ssbezier.scr or sspipes.scr file extn
Then minimise the window and then simply drag the file into your windows explorer/internet explorer tool bar and there you have it, so if the door bell goes, just click the stars, bezier whatever screen saver links you have and it activates, when you want to resume, just nudge the mouse and your back into windows.
