Have you ever noticed the screenshots in articles here at MyMac? Have you ever wanted to do something similar? Hereâ€™s how.
Taking a screen shot is as easy as pressing a few keys on the keyboard. There are three options for taking screenshots.
1. Full screen
To take a picture of your entire screen press the command key+shift+3. This takes a picture of your entire screen and places it on your desktop.
2. Partial screen
To select the part of the screen you want a picture of press the command key+shift+4. This presents a crosshair. Click and drag the crosshair over what you want a picture of. The picture appears on the desktop.
3. Take a picture of a window
If you want to take a picture of a specific window or menu you can try method 2 above, but a cleaner easier way is to use the command key+shift+4 followed by the space bar. This will turn the crosshair into a camera. Move the camera over the window you want a picture of and click. The picture will appear on the desktop.
If you donâ€™t want to remember the key commands there are numerous apps out there that will do screenshots for you. Do a search in the Mac App Store for some.
