My desktop kept getting overloaded with screenshots. If you want to keep your macOS desktop nice and clean you can change the screenshot location in your macos using the Terminal.

This is simple. First, I brewed my own coffee at home. I got this great coffee from El Salvador which is fantastic!

Open your Terminal and type the following command:

defaults write com.apple.screencapture location /Users/[your_username]/Desktop/screenShots

In this case I decided to have my screenshots save to a folder in my Desktop. Now, every time I take a screenshot I only need to look inside one folder instead of wondering where is the file in my entire Desktop.
