    As always, Gary, cracking video, stuffed full of information that is useful, even after 8 years of using a Mac. Thank you.

    On my still working MacPro 2010 with 3 Mac OS, I use Sharpshooter for screen capture not available for Ventura 13.1 on my Mac mini M1. This software gave me the possibility to rename the screen before sending it on the desktop. Apple's own screen capture as related in you video does not permit me to rename the screen capture on the fly but only afterwards on the desktop. Or did I miss something in your presentation ? Thanks. Is there another way to view your response other than returning here ?

    Louis: Use Command+Shift+5 to bring up the screenshot utility. Click Options. Change the "Save To" option to Preview. Now when you take a screenshot it opens up, unsaved, in Preview. A quick Command+S there and you can save it wherever you want with whatever name you want.
    (As for your last sentence, I'm not sure what you mean. You asked a question here in the comments for this post, so that's where the response would be.)
