Setup Guide

Retro Anime Clock Screensaver Setup

  1. Download the .zip via the link on the order confirmation page, or in your confirmation email.
  2. On your Mac, open up the .zip file, then the .saver file inside. This will automatically launch System Preferences into the Screen Saver section.
  3. Restart System Preferences, enter the Screen Saver section, select Retro Anime Clock – and you’re done!

Tips & Troubleshooting

  • To do an instant preview of the screensaver, hover over the large thumbnail on the right-hand  side and click “Preview” [1]. You can also set up Hot Corners to make the screensaver appear on command in the future, no matter which app you’re in (Hot Corners Guide) [2]
  • To set the time the screensaver appears after your computer goes idle, pick from the dropdown at the top of the System Preferences window [3]
  • Change between 12-hour (with AM/PM), 12-hour, and 24-hour clock views by clicking “Screen Saver Options…” underneath the right-hand side thumbnail [4]
  • Make sure “Show with clock” at the bottom of System Preferences window is not checked to prevent macOS’s default gray box clock from showing on top of the screensaver [5]
  • If you’re experiencing issues changing your options, restart System Preferences
  • Make sure your Mac is on a recent operating system (Mojave or newer)
