The procedure to set a fireplace screensaver varies depending on the operating system of the device to which it is being set; for a Windows PC, begin by right-clicking on the desktop screen. After downloading an appropriate screensaver, follow the directions for your specific device on setting your screensaver.
Fireplace screensavers are available for download for PC and Mac from many websites. First, you should ensure that the download is from a reputable site and is not a vector for computer viruses. Duraflame is a well-known brand and has a free screensaver available in 3 resolutions for both of iOS and Windows. The file should be saved in a location that is easy to find later.
To set a screensaver on a PC, right-click on the desktop and select Personalize from the drop-down menu. This opens a window with options to alter the desktop picture, theme, icons and screensaver. Selecting the screensaver gives options to set the type of screensaver and the length of time from the last user input to initiation of the screensaver.
Setting a screensaver on a Mac is accomplished by accessing the Apple Menu, then selecting System Preferences. Select View, and then Desktop & Screen Saver. The Screen Saver tab displays the available files.
