How to make a screenshot on a Mac computer? For users who are using a Mac computer for the first time, it may be difficult at first because they are not used to the Mac. This is because the Mac’s operating system and keyboard layout are slightly different from other computers. One of these differences is the method of taking screenshots. On Windows, screenshots can be created by pressing the “Screen Print” key. However, since there is no such key on the Mac, a screenshot can be created using some keyboard shortcuts.
There are several options for taking screenshots on Mac. Of course, you can use the most suitable method for you. Here are the methods for taking screenshots on Mac;
1.Capture the entire screen
You can easily save an image of the entire screen by pressing the Command+Shift+3 keys on the keyboard. After you press these keys, the equalizer sound will be heard. This is how the screenshot is taken and saved to the desktop.
2.Capture the selected part of the screen
When you press Command+Shift+4 on the keyboard, the mouse cursor will turn into a cross. After that you can select the desired part of the screen and save it.
The gray area you can see on the image below will be saved as a screenshot.
3.Create a screenshot of a window
When you want to take a screenshot, you may not want to see the background. To do this, all you need to do is press Command+Shift+4+Space. When you press these keys, the mouse pointer will turn into the camera pointer. So you can leave the background in the shadow effect and save the screenshot of the desired window.
Note: If you do not want the screenshots to be saved on the desktop, you can copy them to the clipboard. To do this, you just need to press the Ctrl key in addition to the above mentioned key combinations. For example, press Command+Ctrl+Shift+3 to copy a screenshot of your entire screen.
