Create a screensaver

Hello everybody,

I should like to create a screensaver that shows the path of the current picture on top of screen, and allows to browse between pictures with the left/right key.

C:\Windows\System32\PhotoScreensaver.scr generates a screensaver that allows to browse between pictures with the keyboard, but does not display the path of current picture.

IrfanView allows to display the path of current picture, but browsing between pictures only works during the test, not once the screensaver is saved. And they fail to update a password, to ask on their forum.

Any other idea ?

Oh, I thought I had asked the problem "I want to choose a screen saver, that shows the path of the current picture, and allows to browse between pictures."

But ... I did not, so if somebody knew of a product that did so, he did not tell.

So, I created a screen saver that realises those two functionalities, and further more it allows to save the paths of the displayed pictures to a file.

So, problem badly asked, but solved.
