MacOS – Store screenshots in a different location!

Go to Spotlight (magnifying glass icon in the top right) search and open terminal (or your choice of shell). From there input (with the relevant path you want to store screenshots in):

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

It’s as simple as that! If you’re as trigger happy as me with cmd +Shift+4 for screenshots then you’ll find this a godsend in terms of not cluttering up your desktop.

Super handy if your work doesn’t permit the use of app like Skitch.
