How to take a screenshot on Mac Computer (Windows and Mac OS): Part 2

Welcome to today’s tutorial. I shall be continuing from our last tutorial on how to take a screenshot on a PC; but for today, I’ll be focusing on the Mac OS – as we’ve already looked at How to take a screenshot on a Windows PC : Part 1.

To take a screenshot on your Mac OS device is just as or even easier than with Windows OS. You can do this using any of the three methods below.

How to do screenshot on Mac computer (For the Mac OS users)

Method 1:

  • Step 1: Make sure that you have the screen as you’d want it when captured.
  • Step 2: Press the key combination “Command + Shift + 3” to take a screenshot of the screen.
  • Step 3: Locate the screenshot you just took on your desktop. It should be labeled with the date and time that it was captured.

This method is useful if you wish to screenshot a particular area of your screen and not the entire screen.

  • Step 1: Press the key combination “Command + Shift + 4”. The pointer should then change into a crosshair.
  • Step 2: Click and drag the crosshair to select the area of the screen you wish to screenshot.
  • Step 3: Release the mouse button; you should hear a camera shutter sound (if your computer sound is turned on) to indicate the screenshot.
  • Step 4: Locate the captured image on your desktop as in the first method.
