De-Clutter Your Computer Desktop by Saving Screenshots to Dropbox

.

Screenshot 2014-08-28 10.04.54At least once a day, and sometimes more, I find something I want to screenshot. Sometimes it's an order confirmation for something I've bought and I want to be sure that I have my confirmation number (in case the email gets lost in cyberspace). Sometimes it's inspiration for a photo shoot or a website design and instead of pinning it, I just want to screenshot it. After awhile all of these screenshots that by default were being saved to my desktop begin to clutter up the desktop until it looks like a crazy-person's stalking chart (you know what I mean if you watch Homeland – don't tell me what happens at the end of Season Three, I'm not there yet!)

Then one day while I was working away I got an email from one of my favorite cloud apps, Dropbox. That email took my desktop from crazy-town to clean-ville. Dropbox has a cool little feature where you can save your screenshots to a Dropbox folder. That way they're stored safely in the cloud, you can access them from anywhere and they aren't cluttering up your desktop or hard drive. And because the screen shots are screen resolution sizes… they take up hardly any space in your Dropbox folder… which by the way is about to get much much more affordable! (Find out about how Dropbox is dropping prices here.)
