Windows 2000 Easter Egg - 3d Text Screen Saver Egg: Not the Volcano!

Open Registry Editor (File, Run, regedit).

Expand HKEY_CURRENT_USER, Control Panel, Screen Saver.3DText. Click Edit, New, String Value.
Call it "Magic" (case sensitive), and enter "C:\3dtext.txt" as the value. Exit Registry Editor.

Create New Text File, in C:\, called "3dtext." In it, first put a dash, and then a word (no space). That word is important, so remember it. On a new line, put Words that you want to fade out and in:

I am Cool
Amin't I?

Goto Screen Saver Properties (Start>Settings>Control Panel>Display>Screen Saver). In the dialog for text, enter the word after the dash in the text file.

Create as many as these as you want, by creating another word with dash:

I am Cool
Amin't I?
-So Cool
I am so Cool
I are too!

When the text for the screensaver is "Cool," I am cool, and Amin't I will be displayed.
