I would like to change the default screenshot location for OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 using Terminal. But this command is not working, where subfoldername = "name of my sub-folder" I want to store my screenshots in.

author$ defaults write com.apple.screencapture location -string “$HOME/Desktop/subfoldername"

You need 2 lines

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

and the

killall SystemUIServer

  • Thanks for the info. How do I need to type my command now that the default folder location is modified? /usr/sbin/screencapture -cR "0,100,1400,800" "/Users/politicus/Downloads/NameOf_File.png" or /usr/sbin/screencapture -cR "0,100,1400,800" "NameOfFile.png"? I tried your two lines and my screenshot wasn't saved in the Picture folder.
