How to install a retro clock style screen saver


I just found a real cool screen saver that my brother is using. After a preset time of inactivity your computer screen switches over to an old style flip-over clock. It looks great and is functional. Here’s how to get it going.

In the old days when computer screens were made of phosphorus (like old TV’s) if you left the same image in your screen it becomes burned into the screen and stayed there permanently, so it was necessary to run a ‘screen saver’ after a few minutes of no activity to make sure your screen was not damaged. Thats no longer an issue with LCD screens, but there are a host of ‘screen saver’ applications that turn your screen into an aquarium and so on. This app is one of the classiest that I’ve seen, it turns your screen into an old flip style clock display.

The screen saver is called ‘Fliquo’ and you can download it from here.

Here’s how to get it going:

1. Find the downloaded folder and find the little screensaver panel that looks like this:


Double click on it to install it. You will get a dialog box something like this. Click install.


2. This will take you to your ‘Screen Savers’ control panel. (You can also get there from ‘System Preferences’ then ‘Desktop and Screen Savers.’ Select the ‘Fliqlo’ screen saver.


You can select how long the delay is before the screen saver appears from 1 minute up to 1 hour. I have selected 2 minutes.


That’s it!

Now after 2 minutes your display will turn into am Old School flip clock.

I am extremely grateful to you, can you believe i even watched youtube videos but didn’t get it right???? Thanks so much for the share. i appreciate it

You always need to be careful about anything you download. So check where you are getting it from. This company looks OK, especially as they have an iPhone app on the Apple store.
