Screenshots can be so helpful in sharing or saving information. Here’s how it’s done on a Mac or PC:

On a Mac

To capture your entire screen, press Shift-Command-3 simultaneously (the image ends up on your desktop). If you want a particular portion of the screen, press Shift-Command-4 and make your selection. For capturing an individual window, press Shift-Command-4 and tap the Spacebar, then select the window you want to capture.

On a PC

Learning to use the Windows “snipping tool” will change your life! Find the Snipping Tool by searching for it – select the Start button, type “snipping tool,” and then select it in the search results. It will open and you can choose the type of snip you want, select Mode and then choose Free-form, Rectangular, Window, or Full-screen Snip.
