Taking screenshots is very easy on Mac. But after taking those screenshots, when they fill up your desktop, it looks messy. But there’s an easy way to Send Mac Screenshots to a specific folder.

Steps to Send Mac Screenshots to a specific folder:

    1. Create a folder on your Mac.
    2. Open Terminal and type “defaults write com.apple.screencapture location <address of the folder you have created>”. You can easily drag that folder to the terminal to paste it’s path to the terminal or you can manually type it.
    3. Press Enter.

That’s It. Now Try to capture a screenshot and see if it goes to that folder.

Hope it’ll work for you. Leave your comment if you need help.
