    Never tried this in a long time and now with newer OS's. As i am sure you are trying third party apps, best known one is a paid version

    HMM that is interesting. I never used that but I do like screensavers. I think for a moving desktop I would follow the advice that jds63 posted.

    Hi all,, sorry I am a little late but I have been asleep as it is our night time here.
    Well here is the link I have been trying,::

    I hope you have better luck than me, I thought about a bought one but then if I didn't like it it was a waste of money,
    so I thought I would try a free one first. I might have to buy one in the end but I still don't know how its set up.
    Thanks for all your help.
