Macintosh Tutorial – How To Change The Location Of Your Screenshots

Good evening!

Today, I’m going to teach you how to change the location of your screenshots. If you want to know how to take a screenshot, just go here. Now, let’s get started shall we?

Note: By default, the location of your screenshots should be on your desktop.

1.) Open the Terminal under your Utilities folder.

2.) Type and fill in the code below.


defaults write com.apple.screencapture location ~/FolderNameHere/Sub-FolderNameHere/


So, if you want to save the screenshots in your pictures folder type in: 


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


If you want to revert back to the desktop, type in: 


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


3.) After you’ve typed in the code you’d like, make sure you finish it off with the code below: 


killall SystemUIServer


Now, your screenshots are just where you want them. I hope you enjoy!
