How to Take Screenshots on Mac OS X

Oyetoke Tobi - Saturday, June 11, 2016

Screenshot is a great way of showing a point, building a case and documenting things with image. It has been very easy to capture your screen with the Print screen button on computers. 

But it has never been so for Mac users since Apple has removed the key entirely, choosing a key combination as a replacement for capturing screenshots. Thus, new Mac users who transcended from PC will probably become baffled if they try to capture an image of their screen. 

Luckily, Apple gives a few ways, simple keyboard shortcuts for taking screenshots. So we’ve explained the keyboard shortcuts you can use to capture your screen. 

How to capture a screenshot of the entire screen

Press the combination of Command + Shift + 3 buttons together to take a screenshot of the entire screen and saves it directly on the desktop. This will capture the entire screen as a screenshot.


How to capture the screenshot of a particular area

Press the combination of Command + Shift + 4, and then your cursor turns to crosshair which you can use to select an area of the screen you want to capture. Then this takes a screenshot of the selected area and saves it on the desktop.



How to capture the screenshot of a particular or active window

Press the combination of Command + Shift + 4, press the Space Bar, and then click on a particular or an active window. The cursor turns to a camera which you will use to capture a window. Then this takes a screenshot of that window and saves it to the desktop.
