  • Hello Christine,

    Are you looking for the Screen Saver panel, where you can set and customize the screensaver currently used? You can find that by clicking on the Apple icon in the top left corner, choosing "System Preferences", and then "Desktop & Screen Saver".

    If you're looking for the actual screensaver files, how to find those is described in the help page you linked to your post: Where are screensavers stored in macOS

    Let me know if you have any further questions.

  • Thank you for your reply. The problem is that the screensavers 'Santa and the City' will only play on a portion of my monitor (the lower left side), it will not go to full screen at all. I used to have this screensaver years ago on a different iMac and I loved it but for whatever reason on this iMac it just won't go full screen. All the other screensavers that I have go to full screen but not this one, not even in the Preview setting will it go to full screen. I just need a refund because unfortunately, it's no fun to watch on less than a quarter of my screen.

  • My guess is that your current Mac has a retina display with a much higher screen resolution. Some older screensavers get confused and cannot fill the screen.

    The Santa and the City screensaver was created by Useless Creations. You can contact them for a solution or a refund at

  • I just remembered that checking the box in front of "Show with clock" in the Screen Saver panel can sometimes "fix" this issue. Of course, a small clock will be placed on top of the screensaver, albeit fairly unobtrusively at the bottom.

    But perhaps they have a better solution for you at Useless Creations.

  • Thank you, that box was already checked but I just tried un-checking it and then checking it again but no, it still does not show in full screen. Thanks anyway.
