    if you downloaded a screensaver, you should just be able to click it and it adds automatically.

    if you are talking about wallpaper, just go to change desktop --> then "choose folder" --> locate your picture and select it

    Sorry, I should have been more clear in saying that I didnt think you meant that. However, I do appreciate the personal attack. :hs:

    If it's a screensaver that doesnt install on its own for some reason just put the .saver file in Computer>Library>Screensavers then go to system preferences>desktop & screensaver>screensaver and it should be on the list on the left.
