I can't find my screen shots. They used to appear on my desktop. I hear the capture sound, but cannot locate them. Can anyone help me locate them?


MacBook Pro (13-inch Late 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.4)

    AFAIK, they'll go to Documents unless you've chosen another location, using something like TinkerTool.

    You can set it back to your Desktop by opening Terminal and entering the following 2 commands:

     

    defaults write com.apple.screencapture location ~/Desktop/

    killall SystemUIServer

    Thank you keg55!! I have never entered a command in Terminal before, but this did solve my problem. I appreciate your help!

    Keg55,

    This worked the first time I did it, but now I can't find the images again. I tried adding the command again, but I can't get it to work now.

    You can change ~/Desktop/ to any path you want like ~/Movies/. Maybe try a different path for now. Also, write down the screen image file name so you can do a search for it using SpotLight.

     

    And remember to do the killall SystemUIServer.

     

    Here is the Link I found that information at.
