My MacBook no longer takes screenshot images

I was working heavily on my laptop, and found the keyboard Cmd+Shift+4 did not work anymore. Then, when connected to my keyboard, again, it failed.


I see the cursor change, and drag it to capture a region, like I have done 100,000 times. But, it does not save on the Desktop. And when I search for "Screen Shot", the image does not show up anywhere on my PC.


What could be wrong?


I found all checkboxes checked when I followed these instructions...


To start with, go to the "Apple" menu and then, navigate to "System Preferences". Next, tap on "Keyboard" and next, tap on the "Shortcuts" tab. After that, tap on the "Screenshots" option from the left side of the window. Finally, make sure that all options here are check or active.



Thanks.

I will try a reboot, plus I am doing a Time Machine backup, exactly so I can reinstall the OS.

Ok, I rebooted and it still fails. But, I do get other errors...


1) There was a problem connecting to the server "localhost"

2) [C] Windows 7 can't be opened because the original item can't be found.


Windows starts fine, under Parallels.


Also, I used MAMP to restart the Apache server and got the following to work:


http://localhost:8080/


I did notice, it beeps when I release the mouse after Cmd+Shift+4. Then, when I paste, that image is pasted.


It's just not writing...


What am I missing?


Thanks

I installed Ventura, but the problem still exists.


What next?

I tried the other Control key, but it still fails. I feel iI need to live without that feature and forward the image.
