I updated to android 9 on my moto g6 plus, but now everytime i take a screenshot i have to tap 'save' in the top right corner to actually save the picture and it's annoying.

It saved automatically before the update.

How can i make it save automatically again?

I can't help you, but yes gamefaqs isn't what it used to be almost 20 years ago. You have too many other forums nowadays.

Android 9 has been taking the Apple approach by adding more clicks and taps to do tasks that used to be more streamlined.

Like screenshots just took, now they're asking you if you want to save or not...

Or the drop down menu for volume used to drop down, now it completely leaves the app youre in and opens settings and from there you can adjust further volume settings

My phone, xperia xz1 compact has pie and still saves screenshots automatically. Volume control controls media by default, and has button to change between normal - vibrate - DND, and option button which takes you to sound settings. Personally I never saw point of volume buttons changing ringtone by default(I have it always on at same level, or in DND mode) so I like how PIE defaults to media.
