Well, here’s something for our Mac OS X users! You may have noticed that anytime to take a screen capture in Mac OS X, it will save the screenshot file to the current user’s desktop. But, do you know, you can also adjust where Mac OS X saves a captured screenshot to any other location? Don’t worry, you are on the right track! Here’s presenting you the commands to change the default location of the screenshots in Mac OS X.

Mac OS X Terminal

First, launch the Terminal and type in the following command;

defaults write com.apple.screencapture location /path/

Well, for an instance, if I want to have the screenshots appear in my Pictures folder, then, I have to type the following;

defaults write com.apple.screencapture location ~/Pictures/

Also, in order to have the changes take effect, you have to type;

killall SystemUIServer

Hence, whenever in the next time, you take a screenshot or (as Windows converts like to say, Print Screen on a Mac), the screenshot file will appear at your specified location.

Also, if in future, you have to again change the default screenshot location to the desktop, then you’ll have to type the following command;

defaults write com.apple.screencapture location ~/Desktop/

Then, again you have to execute the kill SystemUIServer for changes to take effect.

Well, if you’ll have any difficulty while executing the above commands, then, don’t hesitate, just write to us in our comment section below. Also, if you are successful in performing the above, then, just don’t forget to share your views and comments on this with us.
