How to take a screenshot on any mac
There are 4 ways How to take screenshot on any mac.
Apple gives you a fair number of options to easily save, delete and open the screenshot for markup. Tools that I’ve come to appreciate and regularly use.
Let’s look at the 4 Ways how to take screenshots on any mac:
This keyboard combo turns your cursor into a crosshair, which you can drag to select a portion of your screen to capture. Release the mouse button or trackpad to take the shot.
Other options after hitting Shift-Command-4:
a)Press and release the space bar: The crosshair turns into a little camera icon, which you can move over any open window. Click on your desired window to take a screenshot of it. A screenshot captured by this method features a white border around the window with a bit of a drop shadow.
b)Press and hold the space bar: (after dragging to highlight an area but before releasing the mouse button or trackpad): This locks in the shape and size of the selection area but lets you reposition it on the screen. It’s very handy if your initial selection area is off by a few pixels; just hold down the space bar to reposition it before releasing the mouse button to snap a screenshot.
c)Hold down the Shift key: After dragging to highlight an area but before releasing the mouse button or trackpad. This locks in each side of the selection area made with the crosshairs save the bottom edge, letting you move your mouse up or down to position the bottom edge.
d)Without releasing the mouse button: release the Shift key and hit it again to reposition the right edge of your selection area. You can toggle between moving the bottom edge and right edge by keeping the mouse button or touchpad engaged and pressing the Shift key.
This keyboard shortcut captures a screenshot of your entire screen.
If you’ve got theor another model with the Touch Bar you can take a screenshot of what’s currently showing on the Touch Bar. Just hit Command-Shift-6 to take a very wide and skinny screenshot of your Touch Bar.
This combination calls up a small panel at the bottom of your display with your screen capture options. There are three screenshot buttons that let you capture the entire screen, a window, or a selection of your screen.
