Elefunia Butterfly is one of several available free-of-charge screensavers, developed by EleFun Desktops. You will find this screensaver under the Nature Screensavers category on the EleFun Desktops Web Site, along with other versions of Nature related screensavers. As its name correctly indicates, this screensaver shows some butterflies flying around, but perhaps they are not the main protagonists. The screensaver shows a beautiful meadow landscape and a huge setting sun as a background. Over that image there are several birds flying around besides the butterflies. The sounds of wind and birds accompanying the animation are maybe the most relaxing part. Everything is quite and moves slowly.
The screensaver includes a three-buttons configuration dialog. The first button is Options. From there you’ll be able to configure the movie size, quality, key to be pressed to exit the screensaver, turn sounds on/off, and cursors. The second button is Contact Us which includes shortcuts to contact EleFun on the Web. The third button is About Product, and includes some information about the screensaver and its producers.
This screensaver runs on Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP but not Vista. It requires, as a minimum, 128 MB 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:
