Removing the date and time Stamp from Screenshots

By default, screenshots (cmd⌘ + shift⇧ + 3) are saved on your desktop along with the date and time they were taken. It’s possible to to remove the date and time stamp from the file names of screenshots, use the following command in Terminal:

defaults write “include-date” 0; killall SystemUIServer

Revert to the default setting with the following command

defaults write “include-date” 1; killall SystemUIServer

  1. This does not work for me. I have to do this instead:
    defaults write include-date -bool false; killall SystemUIServer
