macOS Mojave: disable the Screenshot Thumbnail

With macOS Mojave, Apple lost Grab, the screenshot app that is lived Applicatis gt; utilities because dinosaurs roamed the earth and replaced it with a program that was simply called Screenshot. You may have noticed that use Command-Shift-3 or Command + Shift + 4 to take a screenshot with Mojave, you show a small thumbnail of your image in the bottom right corner of your screen.

If you ignore the thumbnail, it will end after a few secds where your default locati for the screenshot is located (usually the desktop). If you click it before it disappears, you'll get a markup toolbar so you can add embellishments, and your Mac saves the changes when you click "De".

I know I often say this, but if you do not like this change, you can turn it off, so your screenshots behave like they did under High Sierra. (But you still have access to the nice new Screenshot app yourself if you want to use it.) All you have to do is: Open screenshot from Applicatis gt; utilities or by clicking the ic in your Dock …

… or use the correspding shortcut, namely Command-Shift-5. No matter how you enter, you will see a new screen graphics interface with a bar at the bottom; if you click "Optis", there is the "Show Floating Thumbnail" preference, which you can click to disable.

As you can see, you can also use these optis to save screenshots to a different locati, enable a timer so that you can set a scene before the photo is taken, and so . And the square ics the left of that bar let you choose between capturing windows, capturing the entire screen or even recording the screen. But by disabling the "Show floating thumbnail" opti, you can go back to High Sierra, at least as far as your screenshots are ccerned.

Finally, here's another quick trick: if you're quick and right Check – click the thumbnail after you've taken a screenshot, the ctextual menu you open will give shortcuts to put the item right into Mail, for exle or for save in documents instead of your desktop.

OK, that's pretty cool. I admit that I have restored Grab from my Time Machine backup, just because I like it, but this little feature can cause me to use Screenshot … and even let that floating thumbnail turned . Maybe I'm not that old fart who is afraid of change.

No, I'm completely.
