since my last Mojave update I have a weird issue, that seems to be not only Mojave related but came up on prior releases as well:
I do have the (not favoured) habit of saving print screens on the desktop while working (and I do have a Hazel rule, that moves all print screens older than a day to a specific folder and from there to trash after four weeks ).
So when I make a print screen, I usually use it in another application. However, I make the print screen and if I am then looking at my desktop it does not show up, if I look at the desktop folder it does not show either.
After searching though the internet I found the (very impracticable) solution to change the Preferences of the Finder and then they appear. So when I make a print screen, I go into the Preferences, go to Advanced tab and then click on and off “Show all filename extensions” … then they appear. This is true for looking at the Desktop directly or looking at the Desktop folder.
Is that a bug or a feature which I do not understand? This “solution” was already recommended when this appeared in High Sierra, so it does not seem to be a new problem - but I have never seen it before.
Any ideas, comments, thoughts - perhaps it is only a little something via Terminal?
Thanks for your kind help!
