Hello,

I tried this with MoveWindow api for only one window and it's working. But i want to take whole desktop and shrink it, is this possible do you know how can i do it and with which api ?

Thanks in advance.

Why not just use the Power settings to turn the screen off, or set the ScreenSaver to blank window?

Customer doesnt prefer to do that, so we are trying to find other solutions.

Why do customers make life so difficult for themselves?

This is precisely what screen savers were intended for. The one caveat is you have to teach people how to wake them up appropriately. What that means is tell them not press OK or space or click a mouse button. Doing those things can have unexpected effects. The correct way to wake it up is to either move the mouse or press the Shift or Control keys. All of those are safe things to do.
