  • We're going to show you

  • four ways to take screenshots on a Mac.

  • Use the clickable sections

  • to keep track of what steps you're on

  • during this tutorial.

  • Every method for taking a screenshot on a Mac

  • uses the shift, command, and number keys.

  • To open this menu,

  • press shift, command, and the number five.

  • A small bar will appear at the bottom of the screen

  • below a highlighted box area.

  • The three icons on the left

  • will let you take a screenshot of the entire screen,

  • a specific window, or a highlighted section.

  • The "Capture" button on the far right

  • will take the screenshot.

  • There's also a menu labeled "Options."

  • This menu lets you choose where to save the screenshot,

  • how much time you want between pressing capture

  • and starting the screenshot.

  • In this menu, the option "Show Floating Thumbnail"

  • is turned on by default.

  • While this is on, after you take a screenshot,

  • a tiny thumbnail of it will appear

  • at the bottom right corner of the screen.

  • The screenshot won't be saved by your computer

  • until the thumbnail disappears after a few seconds.

  • However, you can click this thumbnail before it disappears

  • to open the screenshot in a new window.

  • In this window, you can draw or type on it,

  • crop it, share it, or delete it.

  • For a quick screenshot

  • without going through the menu, you can use

  • the shift, command, and number four shortcut.

  • Once you press this command,

  • your mouse cursor will turn into a crosshair.

  • You can then click and drag it across the screen

  • to create a highlighted box.

  • As soon as you let go of the mouse,

  • your Mac will screenshot everything within the box.

  • If you drag the crosshair to create a highlighted box

  • and then press and hold the space bar,

  • it'll lock the box so that it can't change size.

  • You can then drag the box anywhere on the screen.

  • Just release the space bar to take a screenshot.

  • If you drag to create a highlighted box

  • and then press and hold the shift key,

  • you can adjust either the height or width of the box.

  • Just move your mouse up or down to adjust the height

  • and left or right to adjust the width.

  • Let go of the mouse to take the screenshot.

  • Pressing shift, command, and number three

  • will immediately take a screenshot of your entire screen.

  • If you're using multiple monitors,

  • it'll take and save screenshots of every monitor.

  • Unless you enable it in the screenshot menu,

  • this won't capture your mouse cursor.

  • If you have the floating thumbnail option on,

  • taking screenshots in quick succession

  • will capture the floating thumbnail in the corner as well.

  • Not all Mac computers have the long,

  • thin touch bar built in the keyboard.

  • But if your MacBook does have one

  • and there is something on your touch bar

  • that you'd like to show others,

  • you can screenshot it by pressing

  • shift, command, and the number six.

  • This will immediately capture everything on your touch bar.

  • This command has no function for Macs without the touch bar.
