    On Finder, select "Go to Folder" and copy paste the following:

    /Library/Screen Savers/Default Collections/

    I believe this works for other versions of Mac OS (Yosemite, Mountain Lion, Lion, etc.).

    If you upgrade OS to El Capitan, those desktop/screen saver options don't show up. I can find them thru Finder, but how would someone add those options to their Desktop/Screen Saver commands.

    Go to "/Library/Screen Savers/" first and then drag the Default Collections folder into the sidebar and click the plus sign in Desktop & Screen Saver.

    I might be talking about something different. It is not the screen saver so much as the desktop wallpaper. El Capitan does not seem to have all the options in their main list. So, if the Abstract category, for instance, has the wallpaper I want, How do I get the Abstract folder to show up under the list. Would I click the Plus sign and locate that folder under Library and click it?

    I get you now. The ones you're talking about aren't included in the system anymore so you'd have to get it online or another machine.

    Those aren't new. They were there as far back as Mountain Lion, IIRC.

    What KoolAid-Drink said.

    On my Mac, it's an option in the Screen save settings, and I've had that set to that for quite a while now. And I'm on El Capitan.

    True, does not show up in the default wallpapers list, but as others have pointed out, can add that location to the screen saver list in System Preferences.
