How Capture Screen Shots in Mac OS X Snow Leopard


02.09.2009

Taking screenshots in Microsoft Windows is very easy done by using the “Print screen” button but it has a lot of limitations. Fortunately, if you are using Mac OS X, you won’t need extra applications to take screenshots. Here are a couple of ways you can do this in Mac OS X.

A. If you hold the Command and Shift and then press 3, you will take a screenshot of the entire screen.

B. When holding Command and Shift, press 4 to make the cursor turn into crosshairs. This will enable you to select the portion of the screen you want to be represented in the screenshot.

C. If you press the Spacebar immediately after holding Command and Shift and pressing 4, the crosshairs will be replaced by a Camera. This will allow you to take a screenshot of any open window with great ease.

These shortcuts turn taking screenshots in Mac OS X Leopard into child’s play, as you can figure out by giving them a spin.
