A screenshot is a helpful feature that enables users to take a quick snap of their device’s screen whenever they need to keep important information that was displayed on their screens.
Screenshots are taken differently on different devices, and the location in which they are saved it’s not the same. So it's not uncommon for users to struggle with this feature, especially if they switch from one OS to another.
Screenshots may be a bit of a challenge for those who have switched from Windows to Mac.
Therefore, this article will explain everything about screenshots on Mac.
The default location for screenshots on a Mac computer is the desktop.
Once users take a screenshot, the image is saved on their desktop named ‘Screenshot_date_time’.
The screenshot will show up as a desktop background picture, like on the screenshot below.
If you do not see the screenshot, you will need to go to ‘System preferences’, click on ‘Keyboard’, ‘Shortcuts’, click on ‘Screenshots’, and check your key configurations.
1. Apple menu> System preferences.
2. System preferences> Keyboard> Shortcuts>Screenshots
By checking all the boxes, the location of the screenshot files should be Desktop.
In case you have made the screenshots with a third-party app, the screenshots should be saved in a separate folder, like the documents folders.
