Screenshot of Computerbilities Website

What is a screenshot? A screenshot is a picture of a computer, laptop, tablet, or phone screen. Rather than using your phone's camera to take a picture of something on your computer screen, you can just screenshot it!

How do I take a screenshot on a Windows 10 computer?

Use the Snipping Tool, which comes preinstalled on all Windows computers. Click the “new” button, click and drag to create a rectangle over where you want to screenshot, then click "file", "save as." You have the option to do a full screen snip, window snip, or free form snip.

To capture your entire screen and automatically save it, hit the Windows key and Print Screen key. The screenshot will automatically be saved to Pictures > Screenshots.

How do I take a screenshot on a Mac?

To capture the entire screen and have it save to your desktop, hit Shift + 3 at the same time.

To capture a specific area of your screen, press Shift + 4 simultaneously. Then select the region you want to capture. It will save to your desktop automatically.

The Mac version of the Snipping Tool is called "Grab." It comes preinstalled on all macs. Go to your applications folder, then utilities folder to find it. Use the capture menu bar to take various types of screenshots.
