User Control Panel

How does the end user access the User Control Panel? How does he see the picture, info text, switch on the HUD, etc.

When the user installs a screensaver, the Screen Saver control panel will open automatically after installation. At that point, the user can click the “Options” button on Mac, or the “Settings” button on Windows, to see the controls.

To return to the screensaver control panel at a later date:

  • On Mac, from the Apple menu, choose “System Preferences” and click “Desktop & Screen Saver”.

  • On Windows 7 - Right click the desktop, choose “Personalize” and click the “Screen Saver” link.

  • On Windows XP - Right click the desktop, choose “Properties” then click the “Screen Saver” tab.
