You can take a screenshot of the whole screen, or you can actually take a screenshot of a selected area. Im going to show you how to do both.
What im going to do now is, im going to open this computer. The first thing I am going to do is.I am going to take a screenshot of the whole screen. The way I would do that is.by holding down Command, Shift, and then the number 3. Again, thats.Im holding down Command, Shift, and then I press 3. shutterclick That sound that you hear is a confirmation that.
The screenshot has been taken of my screen, and if i go to the desktop thats where the screenshots will appear, is on the desktop. So basically, Ive navigated to the desktop, and I am pressing the spacebar for the preview. And here is a screenshot, of the whole screen. The other thing, if what I want to do is take a screenshot of a selected area. lets say I want to take a screenshot of just the Web browser, for example.
What i would do is hold onto cmdshift.instead of 3, its 4! And then what happens thats really cool is.youll get a little crisscross cursor. What you can do is now, you can select the area that you want to take a screenshot of. Then, once you let go and release. shutterclick .thats the sound that is basically confirming that the screenshot has been taken.
If i go to the desktop and i hit the spacebar for the preview, this is basically a screenshot of just that area. So, thats how you will take a screenshot on a Mac, by holding down CmdShift and then the number 3 for the full screen, or 4, if you want to take a screenshot of a selected area.
