Go back to old-school macOS screenshots
A tip from @ManikRathee on switching back to the classic mac screenshot methodology:
PSA: If you’re on macOS Mojave, you can revert to the old, good, screenshot behavior— manik (@ManikRathee) May 28, 2019
(no floating screenshot thumbnail, no delay before file shows on desktop)
2: Click “options” on the toolbar
3: Uncheck “Show floating thumbnail”

You can also use the Command + Shift + 5 screen to change where the screenshot ends up. I set mine to go straight to the clipboard.
