    I know I saw a thread about this a few months ago but couldn't find it so apologies if this is a repeat.

    My screen capture isn't working. If I press Shift+Control+Command+3, then I hear the usual "picture taking" sound, but no file ever appears.

    Any thoughts?

    It might be saving it somewhere else other than your desktop. Try using spotlight and search "Picture 1"

    That's because that key combo saves it to the clipboard.

    Use CMD + Shift + 3 or 4 to create a file.
