I can press Ctrl+Shift+S, and the Webshots screensaver will start, no matter what screensaver is default, but almost none of the other screensavers I am using have such a hotkey feature, if any. And I use quite a number of different screensavers, so I am not asking for merely a hotkey to some screensaver. I was thinking that maybe someone can write a little something that will fake Windows' timer into thinking that the time is up - so when I press this (new) hotkey Windows will think that X (seven) minutes have passed without actions, and start the screensaver. Can this be done? Edited
I believe that fifteen years ago this feature was standard on Windows, hence the button "Pause".
