    I installed some new screen savers today. It asked me if I wanted it for just me, or all users. I picked just me. I meant to pick all users. Is there an easy way to correct this?

    They will be in ~/Library/Screen Savers/ Just move them to /Library/Screen Savers/ and they will be installed for all users.

    Thanks. Does it work similarly if I wanted to install an application for all users that is installed for one person currently?

    It should do. Have you actually installed applications to ~/Applications? Every app I've ever seen instructs to drag (or installs via an installer) to /Applications which is for all users...
