Change default screenshot folder

I’m using manjaro phavo gnome version. the default screenshot tool is pretty good. Is there a way I can change where It stores the screenshots?

In the about section, It said if you don’t have a pictures folder It will store them in the home folder. Can I change it to store screenshot in /home/Dropbox/?

You should be able to change the location via
(not via the app menu, unfortunately - that is Gnome convenience for you
as soon as you want something different than the defaults, it can get a little … cumbersome :wink: )
open it, search for screenshot, change the autosave directory/put in where you want it.

… create that directory before you point to it

thanks! fixed the problem. btw I tried KDE but it doesn’t work very well with my Nvidia graphics card and looks ugly out of the box. that is why staying with gnome :slight_smile:

I use the Screenshot Locations extension.

yeah for some reason after reboot it still wasn’t saving to my screenshots folder. the dconf edit was still there, but installing this extension fixed it :slight_smile:
