A tweet that’s been making rounds this week is on how to disable macOS Mojave’s floating screenshot preview thumbnail (and remove that delay along with it).
PSA: If you’re on macOS Mojave, you can revert to the old, good, screenshot behavior
(no floating screenshot thumbnail, no delay before file shows on desktop)
2: Click “options” on the toolbar
3: Uncheck “Show floating thumbnail”

Nice, but there’s also a way to do this from the CLI:
defaults write com.apple.screencapture show-thumbnail -bool FALSE killall SystemUIServer
There, much better 😉
Happy Screenshotting! 📸
☝ I’ve also added this tweak to
./freshinstall, a tool which I built to automatically configure my MacBook (Preferences, Dotfiles, Installed Software, etc)
I don’t run ads on my blog nor do I do this for profit. A donation however would always put a smile on my face though. Thanks!
