Introducing ScreenSaver Start

ScreenSaver Start sits up in your menu bar allowing you to quickly start your screensaver by configuring a global hotkey. It can additionally be configured to start at login, so it's always ready when you need it.

Handy for quickly locking your screen (when your mac is configured to lock with the screensaver) ScreenSaver Start is a useful addition to any mac users productivity toolkit. Useful for quickly keeping prying eyes away from sensitive information... With a quick tap on the keyboard, everything you are currently working on, is quickly hidden from view.

ScreenSaver Start is available exclusively in the Mac App Store.

Exactly what I wanted.

Just a nice simple easy way to enable the screen saver. Couple it with my screen lock settings I now have an easy-fast way to lock my desktop. The normal hot-keys to do that don’t work because my Mac is on a KVM switch. This app allows me to assign any key combination I want. Please don’t turn this into one of the other bloated screen saver apps. Works just fine as-is.

Elegant in Its Simplicity

This app does exactly what I wanted: it turns on my screensaver, from the menubar or with a keystroke. I’ve used this app every day since I installed it. I recommend it.
