Need to take a screenshot with your Mac? If you are unfamiliar with the operating system, you may find that there is no "Print Screen" button on the keyboard. Fortunately, this does not necessarily mean that the process is complicated. With different keyboard shortcuts, you can take a screenshot of your entire screen and everything on it, or you can just drag a frame around the area you want.
In the latest version, there are a variety of other MacOS screenshot methods ̵
Use keyboard shortcuts
Capture the entire screen
Step 1: Simultaneously press the "Command" + "Shift" + "3"  This saves a copy of your screen to your clipboard. You can also press the same combination without the "Command" key to save the image as a PNG file on your desktop.
When you run the development preview of Apple's upcoming Mojave update for MacOS, a preview of the screenshot appears in the corner of the screen for faster access to editing tools. You can also use the new screenshot "stacks" feature, which groups screenshots.
Capture a selected area
Step 1: Press the "Command" + "Shift" + "4" keys simultaneously.
Step 2: When you turn the pointer to a crosshair, use the mouse to select the region you want to capture.
Step 3: You can fine-tune your selection by pressing the space bar, which will allow you to take a full-screen shot or select an open menu.
Your selection is then copied to the clipboard. Alternatively, do not press the "Command" key and your screenshot will be saved as a PNG file on the desktop.
If you're using a MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, you'll get options on the touch bar. These include "Selected Area," "Window," or "Entire Screen." You can also record to save it to another folder, such as desktop, documents, or even clipboard. Another special feature is the creation of a screenshot of the touch bar display, which can be done by pressing Shift + Command + 6 to take a screenshot.
Don Do not you feel like keyboard shortcuts? Grab is a program that is preinstalled on all Macs and you can create screenshots directly from the menu bar. The program also allows you to take time-shifted screenshots just in case you need to set the stage on your screen before taking a picture.
Step 1: Start Grab by opening it's "Utilities" folder, which is located in the "Applications" folder. Once you start it, you'll see an icon for the program in your dock. If you want, you can also pin this icon for quick access later.
Grave does not normally have an open window and instead runs almost completely through the menu bar.
Step 2: Either use the Capture menu system to create screenshots as you like, or use the keyboard shortcuts next to each command.
Grave lets you take a screenshot of a particular section of screen, a single window, or the entire screen – the same three options we described above. What's new here is the "Timed Screen" option, which gives you a 10-second delay before the screenshot is captured.
This means that if you need to open a menu or position your mouse in the correct position, & # 39;
Step 1: Open yourself as before, if you have not already.
Step 2: Select "Timed Screenshot" from Access the menu or press the shortcut "Command" + "Shift" + "Z".
Note that by default, your mouse pointer does not appear in the screenshot. If you want to make sure it is captured in the frame, click Settings in the Main Grab menu and select the mouse icon from the resulting pop-up window.
The cursor appears only when shooting delayed screenshots, which is just as good as you have to take screenshots with the other options with your mouse. We still think keyboard shortcuts are a better way to take screenshots, but if you do not want to remember anything, Grab is a great alternative.
Using Preview to Take a Screenshot
Preview, the default tool that allows you to open everything from photos to PDF files on your Mac, has more than a few hidden features. For example, you can preview images by simply clicking the Toolbox icon. Preview can also take screenshots.
Step 1: open preview
Step 2: Select "File" in the menu bar.
Step 3: Select "Create Screenshot" from the drop-down menu, and then choose "From Selection," "From Window," or "From Entire Screen," depending on your preferences.
