    How to change screenshot location?

    In my archviz, I configured a button to take a screenshot of the view, but I would like the images to be saved directly to the desktop, is it possible?

    is there a documentation somewhere on how to configure such a button? I am interested in this topic because I would like to realize something like this in my projects.
    Thanks for your help and tips.
    Regards

        But you didn't get any more information for your original question above?

          So, you can't set the screenshot directory from the Editor without changing the source. However, you can use a file system "trick" to create a link between the Screenshots folder in your project and another folder on your machine using the MKLINK command:
          https://www.techrepublic.com/article...-in-window-10/

          So, using the command:
          Code:
          mklink /J C:\MyGame\Saved\Screenshots D:\UE4Screenshots
          creates a new "folder" called Screenshots that actually points to the D drive. You should note that you'll need to remove the existing Screenshots folder before running the command.

          Cheers,
          Tom
