Mac screenshots to desktop faster?

It takes literally 5 seconds after I do a screenshot on my Mac for it to post to the desktop. Any way to speed this up?

I have the same issue... sometimes it takes as long as 20-30 secs on my late model iMac.

In Mojave, the delay is intentional. It gives you time to click on the thumbnail presented in the lower right corner of the screen if you wish to do any post adjustments to the image.

Takes just a second or 2 for me. I have it set to save directly to a folder in my dropbox.

Ive also got an extension for Firefox, but I cant figure out its name.

Saves the whole page or a section, and saves the screenshot with the name of web site: Screenshot_2019-07-23 Mac screenshots to desktop faster

Thanks, I wasn't aware of that and never noticed it in the bottom right. I just tried it and that is going to be handy.

What's even nicer in Mojave is Shift>Command>5 gives you a box to select what you want to save. Then hit Return and boom. BTW, mine is pretty much instant, no lags.

in older OSes it is Shift + Command +4. Why did they change it to 5 in Mojave?

shift-command-4 still works the same way it always has. The 5 option is different. check it out.

Yes, 5 is way cooler than 4. You should check it out.

You guys are great! I never noticed the edit box in lower right.... And now I know about shift/CMD/5 and it is fast again.

Thanks!
