The lengths folks will go to to make themselves believe Macs can do no wrong. Just imagine the size of a keyboard that only has buttons as specific as the print-screen key… Now THAT would be a dumbed-down interface. Just tell us how to capture the screen on the mac. It saves the captured area as a tiff in a location of your choosing. As one who switched about 4 yrs ago, Grab has helped me not have to remember the mac kbd shortcuts.
Print Screen Mac | How to do Print Screen on a Mac
Thanks for the helpful tips. I am a reformed PC user, I frankly will never go back. Mac is way to user friendly. Unless you time the pressing of that […]. I am running windows on a mac book pro in order to run some specific applicaitons — how do you take a screen shot while running windows on a mac book pro style keyboard? Yeah, right. Unlike Mac developers, PC developers understand that this is a command that most people use about every few months on average.

Each time I need to do it, I have to google the directions and key combination. What could be a 5-second process turns into a 3-minute activity. Well, damn, apparently we have no BBCode here. Thanks for these easy steps. I find this so much more user friendly than the print-screen command with the PC which forces me to open it in Paint and crop it. Now I can crop before I take the shot. To use it, open up your Terminal. It […]. What am I doing wrong? Where do these images go to? How do i do this on a mac? I run into the question of how to Print Screen on a Mac rather frequently too, but while the Mac may require a key combo to remember, iOS is even easier.
I tried googling how to take a screenshot on Mac without having to play keyboard twister, but no dice. So glad I started looking through the comments on this page. Ridiculous nonsense written by a mac snob who seems to want to say anything to cast Windows machines in a bad light. Oh really? Care to explain the FF19 keys? The ones they put in the place of that cumbersome print screen?
If apple wanted to simplify the keyboard, why did they put a spurious key in its place? Help topics such as the print screen function, a snap to find online. Wanting to print a satellite image from google maps I found the command, shift, 4 very useful.

The 6 Best Shortcuts to Take Screenshots on a Mac
Come on, ONE dedicated key for such an essential function?? You Mac people are brainwashed. Thanks, this was very helpful. On my machine it does not save file on Desktop. It lets me select the area, but does not save anything. The clipboard is also empty.
I run But then on linux you have a wide range of options. I bet there is a tool that supports just the same insane keyboard shortcuts as Mac provides.
greatreporter.com/includes That way, you can all get rid of that annoying extra key :. Original Post Details […]. Also wrong… the PrintScreen key is not a Microsoft convention. It is a hardware that convention that sends a specific instruction to the OS.
No different to the A key, or the 5 key. How the OS reacts to that key is a different matter entirely, but the key itself is just A KEY the same as every other key. Linux acts differently depending on which flavour also. Being one that used the Print screen button multiple times daily, I really like it being a button. Must admit that I like the fact that mac os makes print area and print window so easy, though.
Yep — the reason for having the print screen is for something called searchability. There are arguments for both, but neither is right. The snipping tool is better than this. I am using a dual program which allows me to use MAC and Windows at the same time. However as my MAC doesnt have a print screen button, this also does not enable to print screen on my windows using the tips u have provided.
Please help. If you have a mac keyboard hooked up while running windows boot camp , I do not think you can screen capture with any combination of keys. You appear to have very little intelligence backing up your ridiculous accusations. I agree with IGenius.
Mac Fanboi is the perfect accusation. I, myself, print screen very often and do not want to waste time by clicking many buttons, saving it on desktop, then finding it on desktop, then cropping it and deleting the original. What a waste of time…. Totally agree! I have been playing around with images and wasting a lot of time on this mac for something that could have easily been done on a pc, with simple screen shot and paint.
Easy as that! You sensitive types should learn to ignore trolls instead of getting butthurt over a drive-by comment. The fact is I have to look it up on the internet every time I need to print screen. And they say they are doing this to simplify the keyboard??? How about simplify my life? Why did I have to google just to accomplish this???! Taking a print screen in windows needs more actions!
