    More importantly, could you keep the thumbnail but not have to wait 5 seconds for the file to be saved, AND when you take two consecutive screenshots it doesn't show the thumbnail of the first one? Mar 25 '19 at 18:18
  1. Press commandShift5 to bring up the Screenshot menu
  2. Uncheck Options > Show Floating Thumbnail

This will prevent it from showing up.

This will also disable the ~5 second saving delay (screenshots will be saved immediately).

    Have you noticed it still takes 5 seconds to show the file on the desktop, even if you disable this? I could go off on one of my 'fun rants' about this 'improvement'... but I shan't ;)

  • @Tetsujin Screw it. I'm gonna look into copying the frameworks over from high Sierra to completely disable this feature.

  • @JBis If that's successful, please leave as another answer, I'd like to see! Oct 6 '18 at 16:31
  • @Tetsujin Hmm. I just checked again and it seems to be saving immediately. Can you check yours again just to confirm?
