    This isn't a major problem (I'm just an obsessive customiser), but here goes...

    I love the "random" setting for the Mavericks screensavers. I love the iTunes cover flow, slideshows and psychedelic ones but I'm not keen on the "word of the day" or "message" ones. Is there any way to delete or at least disable those two so they don't come on in the random setting?

    go to HD>Library>Screen Savers. drag the ones you don't want out of the folder (perhaps, to a folder on the desktop and tuck it away IN CASE u ever want those back)...

    That path takes me to a sub-folder "default collections" with sub-sub-folders for the images only (Nat Geo, Cosmos, etc.). I can't find the actual screensavers.

    [Deleted System path: totally spaced post before mine]

    Then again, those don't use much space: ~2MB.
