Have you ever wondered how to take a screenshot on your Mac? It’s really simple. If you want to capture your entire display, press Command+Shift+3. If your sound is on, your computer will make a camera shutter noise and save the image to your desktop. The file will be named “Screenshot” plus the date and time. If you just want to capture part of your screen, press Command+Shift+4, then click and drag your cursor to highlight the area of your screen you want to save. Let go of the mouse, hear the shutter noise, and head to your desktop to find the image. You can also take a screenshot of just one window by again pressing Command+Shift+4, but then hitting Spacebar. Your crosshair will turn into a camera, and clicking on a window will save just that portion of your screen to your desktop. Next time you need to show someone what you’re working on, these tools will make it easier than ever.
