    every time i use the hot keys for screen capture, it doesn't work

    its pops a message up that says:
    Screen Capture Failed
    The attempt to take a screen capture has failed. The error is: 'Unable to create type string.'

    it still works when i use preview or grab
    Just that the hot keys don't work

    anyone know whats up with it?

    are you able to save other files to the desktop? Right click desktop, get info. Make sure it is unlocked as well as you having both read and write permissions at the bottom.
