Keyboard shortcut to screensaver

Hi,I used to have a keyboard shortcut to my screensaver but now It's not working.

I have tried and tried to make another one but have had no success.

I have done the google search for the answer but no help there.

I have a shortcut to one screensaver on my desktop and made a keyboard shortcut to it.

I have tried finding the screensaver folder in explorer but no luck there.

I have tried a multitude of searches on net and explorer,I have tried many keyboard shortcuts to the files I find to .scr but no luck.

Now I am asking here.

How to make a keyboard shortcut to the scrensaver .

The .exe (or .scr) for it is on system32 folder. Make a shortcut to that when you find the specific one.

Solved,could not do it the system 32 way,tried that before,so I found the .scr folder from my old XP folders and used that one.

A workaround but it works.
