Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm trying to follow the instructions here

http://snowleopardtips.net/tips/everything-you-need-to-know-about-screen-captures.html

under "Installing the Folder Action."

First it suggests a folder I don't have

~/Library/Workflows/Applications/Folder Actions/

so I created it. But the rest of the instructions don't work as the Finder wants a scpt. How can I get my

Rename Screen Captures.workflow

to fire on Desktop folder changes?

Thanks!

The only reason it doesn't show up in the list is that it was created with an older version of Automator. Double-click it, save it again, done.

Alternatively, just recreate the Folder Action shown in the screenshot directly above the Installing section. This will set up the Folder Action for Desktop. Saving the Folder Action will store it in the folder you indicate, and make it available as a Folder Action:
