Change Screenshot Default Location, Name, and Format

There is a simple way to capture your screen with mac. You have to press the combination of cmd+shift+3 to capture the whole screen or cmd+shift+4 to capture selected screen. As a default, all of the screenshot files saved in Desktop folder. There is no problem if just one or two screenshot files but it can be a problem if you have a hundred or thousand of it in your desktop. So, i tried to move default location for screenshot files to another location to keep my desktop clean.

Open terminal to execute command:

note: make sure you have login as admin to execute command.

change location

defaults write location <path>

change filename

defaults write name <string>

change file format

defaults write type <format>

And then, restart your mac to apply changes.
