    How to Print Screen to a file on the desktop in Mac OS X

    The basic functionality of taking a screen capture of a window or desktop in Mac OS X takes an image and dumps it to a file on the Mac desktop. Each uses the pressing of Command and Shift keys concurrently as the basis for execution, followed by a number:

    • Command+Shift+3: takes a screenshot of the full screen (or screens if multiple monitors), and save it as a file to the desktop
    • Command+Shift+4: brings up a selection box so you can specify an area to take a screenshot of, then save it as a file to the desktop
    • Command+Shift+4, then spacebar, then click a window: takes a screenshot of a window only and saves it as a file to the desktop

     

     

    Hope this helps, Freely2

    Hello & welcome!

     

    You can also use Grab to get a screen shot & save it.

     

    Can you drag the file to Mail's compose window?
