    Hey guys great website, I was wondering how do you go about removing a screensaver off the computer when you no longer need it.. It on a Macbook Pro.. I'm new to Mac so any help would be great.

    Delete the .saver file from /Library/Screen Savers/ or use AppZapper (it's a pretty neat program).

    Edit: The location could be /Users/username/Library/Screen Savers/ if the saver is installed to "Your user only."

    Great info - I was wondering the same thing, and this worked!

    Cool. BTW, I think AppZapper (short of the superfluous zapping sound and flash) is pretty cool. Before zapping an app (or widget, or screen saver) it tells you every file it's about to delete... Usually there are a lot of plists and other scattered files that get installed too. However for the screensaver I was testing with (LotsaWater, BTW, it's an awesome saver) only had the one .saver file package.

    Whodathunkit? Savers are just apps. ;)
