Change macOS Screenshot Command to Copy to Clipboard
January 05, 2020
- Go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts
- Click on Screenshots
- Change "Copy picture of selection area to the clipboard" to shift + cmd + 4
- Change "Save picture of selected area as a file" to ctrl + shift + cmd + 4
That's it! Now, you can easily take screenshots and share them in things like PR comments or tweets by pasting them from your clipboard.
Note: if your preferred learning method is video, I have a walkthrough on egghead
