Default Screenshot Location

By default, Mac saves all screenshots to the desktop. If you’d like screenshots to be dumped somewhere else, you have to configure it manually from the command line. For instance, if you’d like your screenshots to be saved in the ~/screenshots directory, then enter the following commands:

$ mkdir ~/screenshots
$ defaults write com.apple.screencapture location ~/screenshots
$ killall SystemUIServer
