Is there any way to take a screenshot without opening preview application on macOS Catelina ver. 10.15.5?

I was trying to find some information, but all I could find was about disabling Screenshot Preview Thumbnails when record a screen. The problem what I'm facing is that the preview application is automatically opened when I take a screenshot image of screen, that I've never seen in previous version.

Could you tell me to solve this issue? Thanks in advance.

To take a screenshot on macOS Catalina, you have 3+ options. The first is pressing Command + Shift + 3 which will screenshot the whole screen. The second Command + Shift + 4 which will allow you to select an area to screenshot. The third is pressing Command + Shift + 5 or typing "Screenshot" into Spotlight search. These will by default not open Preview. I did find a way that might help though. Open Screenshot or Command + Shift + 5 and then click options and save it to another location besides Preview or whatever is selected.

    OMG!!! "Open Screenshot or Command + Shift + 5 and then click options and save it to another location" helped ! The location was Quicktimeplayer before doing this, and after changing it to another location, it solved!!! I can't thank you enough. – user11469194 Jul 2 at 5:10
