Hi, screensavers normally have a .scr extension.
If you do a file search for
you will be presented with a list of screensavers that are stored on your computer. Select the one you require and make a copy for the other computer.

Screensaver are normally stored at C\Windows\system32.
Jpeg images stored at My Documents\My Pictures are normally available as screensavers.

What's the operating system of the two computers in question?

If its XP, then the chances are if the other computer is XP it should have the same screensavers installed.

If you go into control panel/appearances and themes/choose a screensaver. If its one of the window's own screensavers then you should be able to find it from the list of screensavers that are listed in the display properties window that opens up.

But if its a customised one, i.e. one of the fish aquarium type or other, then you may not be able to install it on another pc due to copyright rules as when you buy it the license will probably be for you to install it on one pc only.
