How to do Print Screen on a Mac

James David - Sunday, November 13, 2011

There is no print screen button on macs but when you learn how you will see it is useful.

Here are the three ways to do a print screen, or screen capture, in Mac OSX:

1. The simple “print screen button” capture:

  • Press the Apple key ⌘ + Shift + 3 all at the same time
  • You will find a capture of the screen on your desktop named ‘Picture _’

2. Capturing a selected portion of your screen:

  • Press the Apple key ⌘ + Shift + 4 all at the same time
  • You will see the cursor change to +
  • Drag a box around the section you want to copy and release the mouse
  • You will find a capture of the screen on your desktop again named ‘Picture _’

3 . Capturing from a selected application window:

  • Press the Apple key ⌘ + Shift + 4 all at the same time
  • You will see the cursor change to +
  • Press the spacebar
  • The cursor will change to a camera. Simply click on the window you want to be captured.
  • Again the capture of the screen will be on your desktop named ‘Picture _’

Hope this was helpful in explaining how to do a print screen on an Apple mac.
