You didn't mention which version of windows you're running, however on all the versions of Windows you can simply search for the file extension .SCR to see where the rest of the screen savers are stored and copy your new one in to the same place. The default location is
C:\Windows\System32
copy the file to that location.

Also, be sure to scan it for viruses as a lot of viruses come in via screen savers...

How to customize Screensaver in Windows 10
RECOMMENDED: Click here to fix Windows errors and optimize system performance
There were times when computer monitors used to suffer from image burn-in issues caused by showing the same image for a long period of time and people used to install a screen saver to avoid the issue. The computer screens today no longer face the burn-in issues, but people still use the screen saver on their computer systems for fun's sake. Windows 10 comes with a six built-in screensavers. Let us see how you can customize screensavers in Windows 10.
Read: Are Screensavers necessary and still needed.
Screensaver Settings in Windows 10 You can get to your screen saver settings directly by typing 'Screen Saver' in the taskbar search box in the lower left corner of your system. Click on 'Change Screen Saver' and it will take you the Screen Saver settings right away where you can adjust the settings according to your own preferences.
Alternatively, right-click on your Windows 10 desktop, and select Personalize to open Personalization settings. Next click on Lock screen in the left pane.

Scroll down the Lock Screen settings and click on Screen Saver Settings. The following window will open. Here you can adjust the settings according to your preferences.

By default, Windows 10 offers the following six screensavers - 3D Text, Blank, Bubbles, Mystify, Photos and Ribbons - nothing new here. Select the screensaver from the drop-down menu and change its defaults Settings, if any are available.
For instance, the 3D Text screensaver lets you customize the text as well as a few other options.

The Photos screensaver lets you display your favorite photos as a screen saver.

Once you are done, click on save and exit.

Create Screen Saver Settings Shortcut

If you access the screensaver settings frequently, you can create its desktop shortcut as follows: However, it is easy to change the settings but if you change your screen saver often, it would be better to create a Screen Saver Settings shortcut on your desktop.
To create the shortcut, you have to right-click on your desktop and click on New > Shortcut.
Type control desk.cpl,,@screensaver in the location space in the wizard.
Click Next and give a name to your shortcut. Click Next and you are done. Give it a suitable icon of your choice.
Use this shortcut to change or adjust your screen saver settings whenever you want, quickly.
You can also create a shortcut to launch or change Screensaver state for a specific screensaver.

Tip

Applying the settings to the logon desktop


Next, you need to apply the Screensaver settings to the Logon Desktop / Welcome Screen (Technically, HKEY_USERS\.Default registry key), so that the Screensaver is invoked when no user is logged on. Copying all the Screensaver settings to the Logon Desktop (or Welcome Screen) manually is a tough task. Use Tweak UI instead.
Download and install TweakUI.
Launch TweakUI and click Logon, click Settings.
Select Screensaver from the list box and choose Copy Now
The Screensaver settings are applied to the Logon Desktop
Restart Windows for the changes to take effect
Allow few minutes at the Logon screen, to test if the Screensaver is working properly. The Screensaver should launch after the timeout. It will look as if the Company Logo moves around.
Additional Tip
The User interface / slider allows the minimum value for picture change interval to 6 seconds only. To reduce the change interval to less than 6 seconds, alter the registry value named ChangeInterval (Set decimal value 1000 for 1 Second, and so forth) in this key:
HKEY_USERS \ .DEFAULT \ Control Panel \ Screen Saver.Slideshow
For Current user profile, make the change here:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Control Panel \ Screen Saver.Slideshow

With no logon wallpaper set, Windows displays a pre-defined color for the logon desktop. ( If you have enabled Welcome Screen, press CTRL+ALT+DEL twice to see the logon screen background color. ) To change the logon background color to that of your choice, you need to alter the registry:
Click Start, Run and type REGEDIT and press Enter
Navigate to the following key:
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Colors
Backup the registry key by exporting to a REG file
In the right pane, double-click Background
In the Edit String dialog box, type the Color code in R G B format and then click OK.
Example: Type 0 0 0 if you want to see a Black background. You can choose any combination from 0-255
Points to ponder
If the logon Wallpaper is set, the background Color may not be visible. So, you must reset the Wallpaper value to a blank string in this key: HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop
If the Background value is set under the following Winlogon registry key, the above setting is ignored. In other words, the Winlogon\Background value takes precedence over the .DEFAULT..\Background value.
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
