Hello, I did a screen shot by doing the regular command+shift+4, Regularly these screen shots appeared on my desktop. After doing this screen shot a small window appeared on my desktop. I omitted to read the content of this window, but at the bottom of this window there was a button with the word: Share, and I clicked on it. The screen shot has disappeared. I found that it went to my clipboard. My question: How can i bring back my screen shots to my desktop?

To get the one that's on your clipboard you could open Preview, and then in the menu choose 'new from Clipboard'. You'll be able to save it from there.

To make screenshots appear on the desktop, you can use Grab. It allows you to choose any folder to save screenshot. But if you need it to be saved to the desktop automatically, you use this tool.
