Save for later with easy screenshots 04 Sep 2019

You’ve got something on your screen and you want to share it or save it for later. So grab a screenshot.

Screenshots are images that show the contents of a computer display. They let you capture exactly what you’re seeing on your screen. This can be very helpful when, for example, you’re filling in an online form which will disappear as soon as you ‘submit’. A screenshot will let you check later what you submitted and when.

They’re also useful when you can’t easily explain something in words. Like when you’re trying to tell your IT person what’s happening on your screen. Screenshot the error message and email or text it to them.

To get a screenshot on Windows 10, bring up whatever it is you want to capture on your screen and press the Print Screen (often shortened to “PrtScn”) key. It’s usually in the upper-right corner of your keyboard. It will take a screenshot of everything on all of your displays. 

There’s also a Windows 10 Snipping Tool. The built-in screen capture tool allows you to better define and capture portions of your desktop display, without a keyboard.

With a Mac, simply click Command/Shift 4, which will change your cursor to a ‘target’ which you can simply drag across whatever you want to save.

Programs such as Snagit (for PC, Mac and smartphones) allow you to grab your entire desktop, a region, a window, or a scrolling window from any webpage or application – all with a single hotkey or click. It can create images and even video to get your point across.
