Hi everyone,

I'm new in the community and to try to understand the type of research that is being undertaken by Einstein@home, I read the screensaver explanation available. My query is about what I read at the end which is:

"When the graphics are displayed in a separate graphics window (rather than as a screensaver) you can control the display with the mouse and keyboard."

I do I get the separate graphics window mentioned to try this out?

Thanks for any help.

Find your E@H/BOINC data directory ( C:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\einstein.phys.uwm.edu on my machine ) and find the likes of 'einstein_S5R6_3.01_graphics_windows_intelx86.exe' and run it! :-)

Cheers, Mike.
