      2.In the Search Companion window, click All file types.

      3.In the file name box, type *.scr

      4.In the Look in box, choose Local Hard Drives (C:) or the drive where
      you have system files stored on your computer.

      5.Click Search.

      6.You will see a list of screensavers in the results. Pick a screensaver
      you want. You can preview it by double-clicking it.

      7.Right click on the file, choose Send To, and then click Desktop
