    Screen Cap Folder
    Is there a way to make a folder where my screenshots will automatically go to when using the keyboard combos to take SS ?

    right now they clutter my desktop and i have to hunt it when i take a SS,
    and i use the keys at least 20 times a day for work.

    If I recall correctly - this is how I did it - long ago.

    defaults write com.apple.screencapture location /Full Desired Path

    typed it in the terminal, didnt do anything.

    no error so im a bit worried as to what it did do....

    i tested it and it still goes to desktop.

    command was:

    defaults write com.apple.screencapture location /Users/username/Desktop/ScreenCaps

    You may have to log out and back in - or killall SystemUIServer first
