How do I take a screenshot on my Mac?

MacOS makes it really easy to take a screenshot. There are three screenshot options:

  1. The entire screen
  2. An entire window
  3. A specific rectangle

To take a screenshot, simply click the following keys on your keyboard together.

  1. The entire screen, Command (⌘) + Shift + 3
  2. An entire window Command (⌘) + Shift + 4  then choose the window with your mouse and then hit Spacebar
  3. A specific rectangle Command (⌘) + Shift + 4, simply drag the crosshair to draw a rectangle to capture


 A small thumbnail will appear allowing you to save or drag the screenshot into an email or browser window. By default, screenshots will be saved to your Desktop.
