Where to find screenshots

By default, screenshots save to your desktop with the name ”Screen Shot [date] at [time].png.”

In macOS Mojave or later, you can change the default location of saved screenshots from the Options menu in the Screenshot app.

You can also drag the thumbnail to a folder or document.

How to screenshot a selection of your screen on Mac

1. Press Command-Shift-4 on your keyboard.

Wondering if you have to hold them all down at the same time? The answer is a hearty yes.

Technically, Apple Support says to press Shift-Command-4, but I hold down the command button first, followed by shift, followed by 4, because what’s life without a little rebellion?

2. Drag your mouse or tracking pad over the area you want to screenshot.

After pressing Command-Shift-4, your mouse will become what can only be described as a target icon – a symmetrical “t” with a circle around the center.

That’s your greenlight that you’re ready to screenshot! Now drag that icon over the part of the screen you want to capture, using your mouse or your trackpad.

3. If you’re in the middle of step 2 and decide you’re disatisfied with the crop of your selection, or for any other reason, you can exit the screenshot by pressing the Escape button (esc). If not, lineup your selection.

4. When you have the right selection lined up, release your mouse.

And voila! Congratulations, your screenshot will magically appear on your desktop, saved as a .png file.

It will be labeled with the words “Screen Shot” followed by the date and time of your screenshot – down to the second. Apple really doesn’t miss a beat.

How to screenshot a particular window on Mac

1. Starting out the same way, press Command-Shift-4 on your keyboard.

2. When the target icon shows up, press the space bar to turn the target icon into a camera icon.

3. Drag the camera icon over any open window, menu, bar, or your dock to take a screenshot of that particular window. (A window will light up blue when you drag the icon over it.)

4. Your screenshot will save to your desktop in the same manner as step 4 above.

How to screenshot your whole screen on Mac

1. Press Command-Shift-3 on your keyboard.

2. Your entire screen, including your dock, any windows you have visibly open on the screen, and the toolbar at the top of the screen, will appear saved as a screenshot on your desktop in the same manner as the above methods.

Now, go ahead – capture your bank transactions, a hilarious message from a coworker on Gchat, or an adorable photo of your granddaughter taking her first steps.

Once you’ve mastered these tricks, you can even dabble in several other screenshot variations that are new to Mac computers running MacOS Mojave.
