Butterfly Oasis Screensaver is one of several available free-of-charge screensavers that you will find on the SoftPlatz web site. As its name correctly indicates, this screensaver shows butterflies in a wide variety of species and situations. One thing to take into account is that this screensaver is not a video based one, that is to say, it shows still images of butterflies so don’t expect to see them flying around your desktop. According to that, and as natural as can be for you, this screensaver doesn’t include sounds. This could be a downside for some and an advantage for others, you make your choice.
The screensaver includes a settings dialog, not very nice by the way. There you will find several aspects of the application to configure according to your likes. Some aspects are in regard of transition effects and its duration, others are in regard of a clock that the screensaver can show on your desktop so you can check the time without closing the saver, and other aspects are in regard of slide number, which can be turned on and off.
This screensaver runs on Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/2003/XP but not Vista. It requires, as a minimum, 16 MB of RAM and a Pentium II processor. Once you have successfully installed the screensaver in your computer you need to put it to work. To do that, follow the following steps:
