    I've just been trying to screenshot some webpages and it didn't work. If I minimised safari, it works fine and snapshots the desktop, saving a file to the desktop, but if I maximise Safari and try again it makes the 'camera shutter' noise but doesn't save the file. Same using cmd-alt-s and pasting into a Word document.

    Any ideas? Running latest official (not beta) version of 10.11.5 and it was working not so long ago.

    If you're trying to save a screenshot of the full webpage have you looked at the awesome screenshot safari extension? It's great for that.

    If you're trying to screenshot the visible browser window try CMD+Shift+4 or for a select area try CMD+Shift+4+Space.

    If none of those save to your desktop then I'd ask if you've got Dropbox installed because it'd save screenshots in the Dropbox folder.

    Command-S is for saving a webpage to your harddrive, not for taking a screenshot. Do what the user above describes.

    It's weird, as it's working fine on my iMac (same modified keyboard shortcut settings, so I don't need a number) with Safari either full screen or not. I do have Dropbox installed on both, but it'd not configured to save snapshots.

    I'll checkout the extension though!

    UPDATE

    A reboot in the MBA has fixed the problem :D

    Maybe you've caused a conflict between your customised shortcuts and Safari's shortcuts then? Worth double checking.
