Screenshot saved folder

Asked by Hongyi Lin

For ubuntu 20.04, why can't we choose which folder to save the screenshot?

Screenshots can only be saved in the "Picture" folder.

I try to change the saving path with dconf-editor, but it does not work.

I hope this basic feature can be added to the screenshot utility in the future.

There may be another screenshot application where you can specify the location. If you report a bug it may be added to the default application in Ubuntu

Can you help with this problem?
