I would like to know how to take a screenshot on my 2006 Macbook since i can not get it to attach wirelessly to my printer. I would like to take a screenshot and send it to my pc to print, but i do not know how. If anyone does please let me know. Thank you.

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    To take a screenshot, press:


    - Command, Shift and 3 keys > take a screenshot of the whole display.


    - Command, Shift and 4 keys > take a screenshot of one portion of the display.


    - Command, Shift, 4 and Space keys > take a screenshot of a window.


    On Mac OS X Snow Leopard, it's not possible to use AirPrint, but if you have the printer attached to a network, you can access to it wirelessly. Another option is to use Bonjour on your PC and share the printer with your Mac
