Screenshots still seem to work for me.
Perhaps your disk is full? Or maybe for whatever reason your screenshot is going to a different location than the desktop. For a while with Lion(I think) I had issues with screenshots not saving to the desktop but after a while it just started working again. I'm not positive what the problem is. I'm running Mavericks now and haven't had any problems with it.

There may be a plist file of some sort. I'm not sure what it would be named and would have to do a little poking around in my MacBook. I checked the Grab.app and it doesn't seem to affect the use of the shortcut though so it isn't there. I will keep looking and hopefully find something, or better yet someone who knows a bit more about this solves the issue!

So they're in your desktop directiory and show in Finder but they won't show on your desktop?
Do you have any applications that modify the desktop or any UI views? (i.e. Flavours, etc.)
Also, there is no plist file I can see. I'm assuming you've attempted a restart and re-log in to the computer. That's always a good place to start. Or you can open Terminal.app and use these two commands to restart your Finder's UI.

Actually they don´t alway appear in my Finder either until some time later... which I have not been able to deduce yet.
However I have found something out.
1. If i take screen shots they dont appear anywhere.
2. When I delete SOMETHING from my Desktop, the screenshots suddenly appear on Desktop and in finder...
Any help would be much appreciated as its a function I use daily.

Yes I still have the problem... there is a whole problem with the screenshot thing. To remedy it I tried to link it to my DropBox so my screenshots would appeat in DropBox file instead of Desktop. But the same problem persists. They dont always immeidately appear in my DB file...
Im surprised Apple have not yet fixed this as many people seem to use this function.

I also experiencing this issue after i upgraded to Mavericks... screenshots are no where to be found, cant locate them in Finder and searches. I have also tried "
defaults write com.apple.screencapture location ~/Screenshots" command, still nothing... Also they are not in my Dropbox nor Documents folders. Any one got a clue?

I'm also having this problem, but it's only surfaced in the last week or so - a system update problem?? I find that if I go into e.g. Photoshop and browse to my Screenshots directory, the files show up; they just don't appear directly in the Finder, which seems odd. I can open in Photoshop and re-save the image to the same location, but it's a real pain. Please fix, Apple!!
