Screenshots are being saved to the desktop but not in a specific folder. I want to remedy that so I found instructions to do so through Terminal. I am following the instructions but I am getting the message that it has NOT changed. Here is what has been entered...what do I have wrong?enter image description here

    Your command should be defaults write com.apple.screencapture location /Users/yourusername/Desktop/ – fsb Sep 12 at 16:07

You do not have a space between location and /Users/.., there needs to be a space between arguments.

defaults write com.apple.screencapture location /path/to/folder
