Great idea! Not working though. Any help? I am on El Captain.

 

I don't know if it's your case but the workflow doesn't work if your default macOS language is not English.

Does this mean that "Desktop" is named something else in non-English Macs?

In a non-English macOS "screen shot" is translated in accordance with the language.

 IIRC, the Desktop folder is always called "Desktop" at the UNIX level, but has a translated name at the macOS level. For example, I'll see "Schreibtisch" in Finder on a German Mac, but still use "cd ~/Desktop" in a shell.

 

You can get the system language via defaults, but I'd recommend putting a filename prefix or regex in the workflow configuration sheet, so users can change it to whatever suits them (they could then also use the workflow to remove other types of files).
