Mac Screenshot Key Combos

Mac OS X screenshot key combos (shortcuts) are a great way to capture images of exactly what you’re seeing on your computer screen.

Taking screenshots on a Mac can be useful for a number of situations and it is a feature that, once you learn, you will constantly encounter situations to make use of.

MacRumors has published a screenshot shortcut key guide that lists all of the possible shortcut key combos to take screenshots on a Mac.

It can be difficult however, to remember every single screenshot key combo so I would like to share the 3 screenshot shortcut key combos that I find most useful.

Take a look at the video below to see all three of these key combos in action!

Mac Screenshot Key Combos:

  1. Command + Shift + 3:
    Takes a screenshot of your entire computer screen.
  2. Command + Shift + 4:
    Allows you to take a screenshot of a specific portion of your screen by clicking and dragging in the desired area.
  3. Command + Shift + 4 and then Spacebar:
    Allows you to take a screenshot of a specific window on your screen (browser window, finder window, etc.).
