macOS Screenshots mini-game easymode

Jul 05, 2023

The default timeout in macOS for a new screenshot to slide off and go live on my desktop is a half-second faster than it takes me to flip back to Slack. I don’t want to play a twitch game with my desktop.

Fortunately, defaults write com.apple.screencaptureui thumbnailExpiration -int 30 to the rescue.
