Controlss not launching

Post by mwellis99 » Wed Jun 26, 2019 6:54 am

Just upgraded to version 8. When I double click on controlss nothing happens.

What I want is to be able to launch directly to the "change screensaver" window that does launch when I use the windows search from the start button and type screensaver (see screen shot). My older version of gPhotoshow folder used to have an executable named configgphotoshow pro that did this. I thought controlss would do it, but it does not, in fact does nothing at all.

Please provide instructions to create a desktop shortcut to launch to this control window. I can't figure it out.

Hello,
all versions of gPhotoShow creates a shortcut labeled "Configure gPhotoShow Screen Saver" in the windows start menu, another is optionally created on the desktop. If you can't find it simply uninstall and install it again.
About ControlSS, it never opened the Windows display applet with a double click, a double click on its icon starts the configured screen saver. To open that window right click its icon in the windows notification area a menu will be displayed, choose "Display Properties"

Thanks Gianpaolo, that took care of it. For some reason, there was no start menu entries, but a reinstall solved it!
