How to remove timestamp on screenshots in MacOS

When you take screenshots on MacOS they are saved with a rather long name, like Screenshot 2023-10-18 at 4.13.56 PM

To remove the timestamp making the names shorter just enter this in your terminal:

defaults write "include-date" 0

After doing that go ahead and run this:

killall SystemUIServer

Now your screenshots will just be saved as Screenshot and successive screenshots in the same directory will have a number appended to them. (i.e Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2, etc.)
