is there a way to create a shortcut to the screensaver settings screen?

i have a fingerprint reader, and so i use my screensaver as a security measure when i leave my computer for a while, and don't want to close my email or other important personal apps. but i get tired of having to go through the motions of getting to the screensaver settings screen. having a quick shortcut, would help a lot.

ok bear with me :) , a nifty little hack I saw either here or another forum which i use is

To setup a link to access all shortcuts in start menu :
Right click the desktop , Mouse over:New, Click: Shortcut.
In the location window paste C:\Windows\explorer.exe shell:::{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
Click: Next
Name it something like "All Tasks" or something similar.
It will give you a shortcut to all the different settings you can make in windows 7

now open that shortcut you've just created and scroll down to "personalization and turn screen saver on or off" and right click create shortcut ..........

this will provide a shortcut on your desktop directly to your screensaver :cool:

GREAT!!! that is an excellent suggestion, and works like a charm. thank you so much. i use object dock, which is a WONDERFUL application, because i don't allow any shortcuts on my desktop. but i just put the shortcut on the object dock, and it is so much more convenient. thanks again, i appreciate it.

Click "start" and type and enter "SA"

And if that's not easy enough... create a SHORTCTUT and put this in

rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL desk.cpl,,1


If this tip doesn't get repped from the little heart above.. then folks just don't know how difficult it is to come up with these solutions.

I just got here via a Google search for creating this shortcut. It works beautifully in Windows 7 Home Premium. Thumbs up!
