You’ll never be sad when you see your desktop from now on…
You just saw something stupid your old friend wrote on Facebook…
Cmd+shift+4 and you’ve screenshoted it (why wouldn’t you?)
You then send the screenshot to your mutual friend with a funny caption like “haha lol xD”
What happens next? I bet $100 you won’t delete that screenshot until months later at night when you half sit, half lie down in your bed cleaning your desktop (I did this 5 mins ago, that’s why I can explain this so detailed).
But I just found the solution… And it only takes 1 minute!
How to change the “default screenshot save location” on your Mac!
A messy desktop = a messy braintop.
- Create a folder on your Desktop called “Screenshots” or just anything else.
- Open the Terminal and enter this command:
defaults write com.apple.screencapture location
Before you hit enter — add space after “location” and then drag the “Screenshots” folder into Terminal.
- Hit enter on your keyboard
- Enter this command:
- Hit enter again… AND YOU’RE DONE!
This is what your desktop will look like (soon when you’ve deleted/moved every screenshot)!
Hope that helped you. Please press 💚 if it did. Will probably save some lives! 😘
