Screensaver with webbrowser control

I want to write a screensaver that plays powerpoint presentations.
So I have a form with a webbrowser control.
Is there any way to get the containing form to know when the user has
moved the mouse if the user moves the mouse over the webbrowser
control?

At the moment I have the webbrowser control only 90% of the full screen
size (the containing form is full screen size), and the screensaver
terminates when the mouse is moved into the screen area outside the
webbrowser control. So it works. But it is not satisfying.

This is my first c# program (first .net program in fact).

thanks for any help. I realise this is a non-trivial question;
Powerpoint 2000 itself doesn't seem to implement mousemouse events
during a slideshow, although I don't have much experience with
Powerpoint macros.

I have been given an unusual task to create a Windows Service to do something periodically to make the screensaver timer reset.

I have tried to reposition the mouse pointer with the Cursor class in a service, but it does not work -- always...

How would I implement the IDispatch interface to handle the following in VB.Net <BEGIN> Controlling Download and Execution The WebBrowser Control gives you control over what it downloads, displays, and executes.

When the WebBrowser Control is instantiated, it will call your IDispatch::Invoke with this ID. Set pvarResult to a...

What are the advantages/disadvantages of using the Flash component on my screensaver application? The basic animation that the screensaver will include can be done either with Flash or by writing code. But with the Flash control, I can easily add much more fancy animation. But I don't know what disadvantages (in terms of user installation, PC requirements during installation, etc) may arise from using this Flash component. Any help is...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
