macOS Mojava: Disable the floating screenshot thumbnail (using defaults write)

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).

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)

Did this help you out? Like what you see?
Consider donating.

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!
