How To Set Up The Analogy Screensaver As Wallpaper In Windows

There are plenty of screensavers for Windows out there, but the best that I have come across is the Analogy screensaver.

Analogy is a beautifully crafted Clock that uses simple typography and visual spatial effect to present the time. It is a simple yet elegant way of presenting everyday object.

This is what Jesson Yip, the designer said:

Analogy is a typographic clock which fuses the immediacy of digital with the visual-spatial quality of analogue into a hybrid format. It presents an everyday object with a fresh twist.
