    How to launch screensaver on Windows 7 using keystrokes?

    I have recently upgraded my PC to Windows 7 for installing more sophisticated games. It was possible to use keystrokes for launching screen saver on the system before the upgrade. In what way can I enable this feature on Windows 7?

    At first, you need to navigate into C:\Windows\System32 and find scrnsave.scr file. Right click on that file and wait until a list of items appears on the screen. Choose ‘Send to desktop’ from that list for creating shortcut for that file. You can then create keyboard shortcut for this shortcut.Right click on that shortcut for that and click the ‘Properties’ option. This will bring up a window on the screen. The next step required is to find out ‘keyboard shortcut’ option from the window. Type the keystroke you want under that option.
