That was there too...

...

;test out the changes

Run("ssmarque.scr /S")

In other words, whatever the screensaver name is, just run([name] /S) I'm guessing. Edited by greenmachine

One more thing - if you leave out the /S switch it opens up the editing window for that screensaver. For example, Run ('ssmarque.scr') opens up the editor for marquee... and for some reason it doesn't have 2 ee's, no idea why they'd spell it wrong.

Oops, I linked to the wrong post. Here's how to determine which screensaver to run:

The reason they spellled it wrong is so that the file name is 8 characters + the dot + 3 characters long.
