When you do the basic Screenshot Command on a Mac the default location for the Screenshot to be saved is your desktop then you have to find them and put them into a Folder.
Well not anymore, by using a simple Terminal Command all your Screenshots can be placed into a Folder of your choice.
- First make a Folder on your Desktop or where ever you want to keep your Screenshot Folder, naming the Folder whatever you would like.
- Open your Terminal Window. Your Terminal can be found in Applications/Utilities on your Mac or found by going to the top right hand corner of your Screen and doing a search in Spotlight.
- Copy this defaults write com.apple.screencapture location
- Now Paste what you have copied into the Open Terminal Window
- Next Drag into the Open Terminal Window the Folder that you made to keep your Screenshots
- Once you have dragged your Folder into the Open Terminal Window you will see in Terminal a command line similar to this one - defaults write com.apple.screencapture location/Users/U2/Pictures/Screenshots
- This part of the Command line will be the same for everyone defaults write com.apple.screencapture location
- This part of the Command line will be different for everyone as it identifies the location of your Folder on your computer and the User name etc. /Users/U2/Pictures/Screenshots
- Now hit the Return on your Keyboard
- Close the Terminal Window
- Immediately restart your Computer
- Once you log back onto your Computer all your Screenshots should go directly to that new Folder that you just made!
