How Do I Have a Screenshot Show Up In the Lower Right Corner Of the Desktop?

instead of the upper right corner. Is there a way to make that the default? Thank you.

    Not sure what you mean. When you take a screenshot in macOS Mojave, you get the “floating thumbnail” in the lower right corner of the screen. It is always in the lower right corner, so perhaps you don’t mean that?

    If you have the screenshots set to save to the Desktop, and you have no other files in your Desktop folder, then when a screenshot saves, it will go into the first position on the Desktop. This is the upper right corner. So maybe that is what you mean.

    There’s no way to change that as it doesn’t really have to do with screenshots. If you created a text file and saved it to the Desktop folder, then it would also appear at the top right on your Desktop. It is just the position for the first icon until you drag it elsewhere.

    Maybe consider choosing another screenshot location instead? Use Shift+Command+5 in Mojave and then you get the screenshot tool buttons. Click Options and you can choose where it saves. Maybe select Other Location and create a Screenshots folder in Picture or Documents to hold your screenshots instead?

    Thank you Gary… I found a bit of a ‘work around’. When the “floating thumbnail” appears in the lower right corner of the screen, I can click on it and drag it just a fraction of an inch in any direction… and that’s where it stays.
