How to “Print Screen” on Mac OS X ComputersBrett Popoleo
I recently switched from Windows XP and Windows Vista to Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. One of the many things I had to figure out how to do on my new Mac was the Print Screen function that I used all the time on Windows. So for those of you that don’t already know, here is the different key combination for “Print Screen” on Mac OS X Computers.
Command key, Shift key, and the number 3 key – takes a screen shot and saves it to the Desktop.
Command key, Shift key, and the number 4 key – the mouse changes from an arrow into cross hairs. Drag the cross hairs over the area you want to capture, when you release the mouse the screen shot will appear on your desktop.
Command key, Shift key, and the number 4 key, + space bar – the cursor will turn into a camera. Move over a window and click the mouse to take a snapshot of the window.
