You would need to edit the .vbs file with it on your desktop, then move it to Windows folder when finished.

A desktop way: c:\windows\system32 -- find the desired SCR file, create shortcut/place short on desktop.

Thank you Roland, but this is to be able to toggle to enable/disable the screensaver from running when say watching a movie instead.

Brink, now I see the value! Instead of having to change Personalization's Screen Saver, simply [dis][able] via context menu. Gonna download the above zips right now...

Roland,

The .vbs file is in the downloaded .zip file from step 2 in Option One.

What would you like to have it speak instead? I'll be happy to make the change, and upload it as a custom .vbs for you to use instead of the one in the tutorial.

Brink, I used EditPlusPro to open that VBS file -- it looks like I can simply change a few words and save as VBS file.
I'll test, if I run into trouble, I'll hail you in here - in a separate thread
