Run Windows Explorer under Sandboxie then go into Control Panel, Display, Screen Saver.
Easy!

But I want to open the config box of the screensavers that have not been installed.

By the way you offered, only installed screensaver's config box can be opened.

You could try creating a shortcut to an .SCR and then adding /c to the command line. The switch /c is supposed to launch the configuration screen and /s is supposed to launch a screensaver fullscreen. I cannot say if this works in all versions of windows.


Also, there have always been ways of launching control panel applets with command lines. I think this launches the SS dialog in xp and vista:

control desk.cpl,,1
or
%SystemRoot%\system32\control.exe desk.cpl,,1


As for installing screensavers, install them sandboxed, or try copying the SCRs to a sandboxed windows or windows/system32 folder.

Thanks to Doon, but it still doesn't work on my Windows XP Home.

Without installing or putting in Windows system folder, it seems no way to open screensaver's config box so far... :(

Other than what Tzuk suggested & others back in 2009.
