Saving screenshots with a useful name (Mac)

Are you a Mac user? Do you end up taking one, two, thousands of screenshots? Well, then you would agree with me when I say that having them automatically saved with a long and not very useful name is a bit of a pain.

It would be great if you could have a choice over the name used to save your screenshots. Well, there is! Here is how:

Open a terminal and type the following (using your own useful text string in between the quotes):

defaults write name "A useful name"

Then, restart the user interface system with the following command:

killall SystemUIServer

And that is it! Enjoy!
