    Screen Captured images are no longer going to my Desktop. I can hear the camera click sound but the image is nowhere to be found. Is there a Screen Capture preference anywhere? MC

    You can do a search for images created today to locate the folder. To change the default folder for screencap images back to your desktop, in Terminal type:
    defaults write com.apple.screencapture location "/Users/yourusername/Desktop/"​

    Thanks, I tried the terminal command and I still cant find the images. I called Apple and they suggested an erase and install. I would rather not have to do that.

    Wow, bit of an extreme solution.
