How to change screenshot location on Mac

I tried CMD + SHFT + 5 and that didn’t work because that only changed the screen recording locations.

Type this into your terminal to change the screenshot location and update PATH to your folder path.

defaults write location PATH

Type this command right after for the settings to take effect:

killall SystemUIServer

The killall SystemUIServer command is used on macOS to restart the SystemUIServer process. The SystemUIServer is responsible for managing various system-related menu bar items, such as the clock, battery indicator, Wi-Fi status, and other system icons.

When you execute killall SystemUIServer in the Terminal, it terminates the currently running SystemUIServer process, and macOS automatically restarts it. This can be useful in situations where you experience issues with the menu bar items or if they are not responding correctly. Restarting the SystemUIServer can sometimes resolve minor glitches or display issues in the menu bar.

It’s worth noting that running this command will briefly cause the menu bar items to disappear and then reappear as the SystemUIServer restarts. It’s a relatively harmless operation and can be a troubleshooting step for resolving certain visual or functional issues in the macOS menu bar.
