Clear/Blank Desktop

Recommended Posts

CheWalter

I'm new to AutoIt, so I apologize before hand if my question is too simple.

Just for practicing, I'm creating a "screen saver" (the classic bouncing text) but I dont know how to "blank" the desktop

Most screen savers will clear/blank the screen and then it will show you the screen saver. After you press any key, the screen saver will stop and your desktop will be back.

How do I achieve that?

Thank you,

Easiest way would probably be to display an image (the background image) or a splash box the size of the screen over the desktop and under your text. Then, you'd have to hotkey every key on the keyboard to remove it.
