This post is part of my Today I learned series in which I share all my learnings regarding web development.

Today, the productivy.so newsletter hit my inbox, and I learned something convenient for dealing with screenshots in macOS.

I use the screenshot functionality very often to include images in Keynote using SHIFT + โŒ˜ + 4. When you use this shortcode, macOS will create a new file in your screenshot directory. This action leads to hundreds of files that were only used once.

It turns out that you can use SHIFT + โŒ˜ + CTRL + 4 to not create a file but place the screenshot in your clipboard instead! ๐Ÿ˜ฒ The same behavior applies to full page or window screenshots. Great finding! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
