Installing screensavers were easy (they’re still easy), but the way you added them to your library has changed in Mac OS X Mavericks or Yosemite. The updates in software and GateKeeper security have made the procedure a little lengthier. And for a few people, complicated.
It is no longer a “double-click and install” procedure, especially for third-party apps. If you try to do so, you will get an error message that the file cannot be opened, as it is from an unknown developer. However, do not be disheartened! Here are a couple of ways to install your favorite screensavers from the web on your Mac OS X.
How to Add Screen Saver via Right-Click on Mac
This method works for files having an extension of, “.saver.” For the files having the extension of “.qtz” extension, follow method #2.

Step #3. A warning message will pop up, “some_name.saver is from an unidentified developer. Are you sure you want to open it?” Click “Open.”
