Website: [ http://www.goat1000.com/trayblank.php ]
Download: [ 97.0 Kb ]
Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8
Description: TrayBlank started off as a tool to help me test JPEG Saver. I needed to check the way it worked when properly run as a screen saver, and not just when manually started by double-clicking the program icon. Starting a screen saver by double-clicking the .SCR file runs it as a standard program, with a normal priority. When Windows starts the screen saver, it is run with a lower priority and could also be on its own desktop, depending on the version of Windows and the security settings.
