    So many ways are there to set your screensaver as wallpaper but the simplest way to do the same is through Terminal. Before typing the command in terminal, open any screensaver to make sure that only your favourite screensaver is used as wallpaper. Now open the terminal and type the following command and hit enter
    /System/Library/Frameworks/ScreenSaver.framework/Resources/ScreenSaverEngine.app/Contents/MacOS/ScreenSaverEngine -background &
    Make sure that you type all the code in single line.This is the simplest method but there is a limitation. You will return to the original screen once, closed the terminal window.

    =) Launch the terminal command window so you have to write the title that is “System/Library/Frameworks/Screen Saver.framework/Resources/Screensaver Engine.app/Contents/Mac-OS/Screensaver Engine -background””

    =) Then press the “enter” from the keyboard.

    =) Now you able to set the screen saver on MAC desktop.

    Done
