bgscreensaver is a simple AppleScript program to start and stop a screensaver module as a desktop picture. The original shell command for this trick is courtesy of Micheal Conwell (as reported by Michael Coyle at ResExcellence.com)

What's New

  • Adds support for Exposé and "Command-tab" application switching
  • Now supports fast user switching (probably not recommended for performance reasons!)


Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later
