Printing a screen on an iMac

With just two steps and no downloads, you can easily capture the whole screen, just part of it, or a specific window by holding down a combination of keys. Screenshots are automatically saved on your desktop. If you prefer, you can use the Screenshot app and choose a different location for storage.

Additionally, while it is saving as a thumbnail icon on the desktop you can manually drag it into your desired folder location.

Capture multiple screenshots with ease and convenience by simply utilizing these few quick steps. So next time you need to take an image or video of your screen for any reason that may arise, you will be prepared to do so quickly and effectively. Don’t forget – if needed, you can always customize your screenshot destinations too!

What you’ll need

Having a Mac or MacBook is essential for anyone who wants to stay on top of the latest technology. With a range of models and sizes, Apple offers something for everyone, from entry-level laptops to powerful workstations. By choosing from the options available, you can make sure you get the best machine for your needs while still having access to some of the most cutting-edge features and software available in today’s market.

Aside from having your physical device, there are also certain additional pieces of software that you may need depending upon your particular activities. If you plan on doing creative work such as photo editing or sound production then software like Photoshop, Final Cut Pro or Logic Pro will be invaluable tools to have at your disposal. Similarly, if programming is an activity you’re interested in then Xcode or AppCode by JetBrains both offer a great experience when developing applications and websites on Mac’s. Whatever your interests involve, it is worth considering what else you require before committing to a purchase decision in order to get the most out of any Mac device that might become home for you.

The Short Version via keyboard shortcuts

Taking a screenshot on a Mac is incredibly simple and straightforward. To capture a screenshot of your entire screen, simultaneously hold down the Shift, Command, and 3 (⇧+⌘+3) keys.

You won’t need to install extra software or use difficult commands; everything you need comes built-in easily accessible with your keyboard shortcuts. After taking the screenshot, it will be saved to your desktop automatically.

Printing out a specific part of the screen can be done just as easily. By simply pressing and holding Shift + Command + 4 (⇧+⌘+4) instead of 3, you will be able to select any area of the screen with your mouse button that needs printing out. This option is great for quickly printing something like a game score or stock price without having to take multiple screenshots over time. Additionally, by pressing the Space bar after Pressing Shift, Command and 4 you’ll be able to select an individual window for printing rather than the full screen which can save time if needed. With these helpful shortcut keys at your disposal, taking a screenshot on a Mac will become second nature in no time.

Where are your Screenshots on a iMac

Taking screenshots on a Mac is easy and convenient; the images are saved in an accessible spot and you can even copy them to the clipboard and paste them into another document. You can find the screenshot tools from the menu bar where you can save high-quality screenshots with the built-in screenshot tool. You can even take partial screenshots or an image of a single window. Once you’ve taken your screenshot, you will find it included with other desktop files as PNG files titled with a date and time stamp: “Screen Shot 2018-07-04 at 12.25.36.png”. It’s helpful for sending across visual content quickly—we here at Parallels love using this feature when working with our teams.

Another great advantage of taking a MacBook® screenshot is that by pressing Control while doing so, users can automatically add the image to their clipboard rather than saving it as a pet file directly on the computer. This way, you can quickly add it to any document or application without hassle or interruption of your workflow. Screenshots are an incredibly invaluable tool, especially when work is distributed among many teams located around the world; having quick access to visuals no matter where you may be is essential!

Taking screenshots can be an intimidating prospect for a first time user, but it doesn’t have to be! With the new Screenshot app from macOS Mojave or later, you can easily learn how to take and save screenshots with ease. In order to access the Screenshot app, simply press and hold the Shift + Command + 5 (⇧+⌘+5) keys together. This will launch the Screenshot app where you can adjust various settings such as setting a timer, choosing where you want your screenshot saved, or even copying it directly to your clipboard.

However, note that some apps—such as the Apple TV app—may not allow you to take screenshots of their windows; every application is different. If you want to copy a screenshot directly to your clipboard instead of saving it as a file format, simply press and hold the Control key while taking the screenshot. You’re then free to paste it wherever you like—or make use of Universal Clipboard if you want to paste it onto another Apple device. With these easy steps in mind, learning how to take a screenshot really isn’t so hard after all!
