Default screensaver button?

is there any way that i could press a button and have the screensaver pop up instead of having to wait 10 minutes (or whatever i decide to put for the setting) or clicking preview on the screensaver tab?

i was just wondering if there were anything like that out there. if not, it's cool. thanks for the help!

You can always ask it to go into Preview (from display properties and screen saver tab). That's what I would do if I need to look at it really fast. I just downloaded the Microsoft 3d screensaver and it is soo cool looking.

Here's the website:

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/d...reensaver.mspx

It's a basic 3-d rendering of the Windows logo. It's plain and simple, but looks neat at the same time. It's actually faster than what it appears here...

so, there's no way to do that except to go
right-click + properties + ScreenSaver + Preview?

or waiting for 10 minutes, or so?

well if you have a normal keyboard no. but i have a logitech elite, so i can do it.

but i dont want to get into a whole thing for ur keyboard but there is a way.

i found it somewhere....i forget.

i think you search in ur windows folder, for anything containing *.scr


that i think will find all of ur screensavers. and if you click on one, it will come up. so copy and paste on onto ur desktop and when you need it hit it!

ill update you on my progress...i am searching for the files right now
