Add the 43 'hidden' wallpapers of OS X Mavericks to your Mac

screensaver-hidden One of the options that we have available on our computers and mobile devices is the option to change the wallpaper whenever we want. After seeing how to use the Emoji keyboard on our Mac Through a simple tip in the new OS X Mavericks, today we will see how to add to our collection of default wallpapers some that we already had in the previous version OS X Mountain Lion and that they are somewhat hidden.

In order to use these spectacular 43 wallpapers With 3200 × 2000 resolution on our Mac, iOS device, Windows PC, Android, etc., we will have to follow a few simple steps that we show below. Once they are in place, we will have the possibility to change them whenever and however we want easily on our Mac from the System Preferences.

The first thing we are going to do is open the finder and press Shift + cmd + G, This tip allows us to directly access the folder we want and in this case where the wallpapers are located. In the dialog box that appears we copy this:

/ Library / Screen Savers / Default Collections /


Once copied, click on 'go' and the following window will appear. In it we find the four folders that contain the 43 high resolution wallpapers that we are looking for, stored in different folders:


Now we put the window aside  'Default Collections' and we access the System Preferences> Desktop and Screensavers  flange Desktop. Here in the drop-down menu on the left side we have to copy (by dragging directly) the folders with the funds that we want to the menu Folders

At the end of these simple steps we can now enjoy the 43 high resolution wallpapers 'hidden' OS X Mavericks. As I mentioned above, these funds can be used on any platform, both for Mac and for Windows computers or other devices that we have at home, it is only a matter of sending them.

    Hello: -> How can I see in the Finder (Mac Os X Mavericks) the photographs that can be seen in 'System Preferences' - 'Desktop and Screensavers' - 'Desktop' and in the sidebar it appears: 'Apple' - 'Desktop Images' and on the right side you can see the images and there is even the one used by apple that identifies the System. Operational and that I could already add the characteristic images of… Lion, Mount Lion, Snow Leopard, El Capitan, Yosemite. But I can't find the way I DID it. Thanks in advance.
