    Thanks i did that but it just opens screensaver to run. I need to be able to go to the settings in screensaver.
    Create a shortcut with this target:

    C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL desk.cpl,,1

    Works for me.

    Right click on the Desktop and select New then Shortcut.
    Copy and paste the the string Edwin gave you into Type the location of the item box: C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL desk.cpl,,1Click Next.
    Give it a name like Screen Saver then click Finish.

    You should now have a Screen Saver shortcut on your Desktop. Double click on it will open Screen Saver settings.

    Note: To test the string, open a Command Prompt then copy and paste the string ito it and press enter.

    Perhaps another solution would be to add @Brink s 'Personalization(classic)' menu to the Desktop right click context menu:
