How to Screenshot on Mac?
To take screenshots on any Mac, you’ll need to memorize a few keyboard shortcuts. Fortunately, they’re all quite similar—and each saves a screenshot image to your Mac’s desktop by default. Here are the default Mac screenshot keyboard shortcuts:
- Save full-screen screenshot: Command + Shift + 3
- Save a screenshot of the single window: Command + Shift + 4, press the Space key, then click on the window you want to capture
- Save a screenshot of the single window without shadow: Command + Shift + 4, press the Space key, then hold the Alt key and click on the window you want to capture
- Save a screenshot of selection: Command + Shift + 4, then select the area you want to capture with your mouse cursor.
- Save a screenshot of Touch Bar: Command + Shift + 6
If you want, you can customize the screenshot keyboard shortcuts from your Mac’s keyboard preferences. Open your System Preferences, select Keyboard, then click the Shortcuts tab and select Screenshots on the left side. There you can customize any of the default shortcuts for screenshots.
