Two issues: 1st: I want to know how to take a snapshot of something on my desktop.

2nd: In trying to remember how to take a snapshot I was just pushing buttons, willy-nilly, and somehow deleted my "back" button in Safari.  How do I get that back?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

    You can take screen shots in 10.4.11 by pressing Command+Shift+4 and you get a cursor where you draw a rectangle around the portion of the screen you want to capture. Upon completion of the rectangle, a PNG will appear on the desktop.


    Your "back" button - do you mean a screen button in Safari, or a keyboard key?

    It's not on my keyboard (that I know of).  It's an arrow on the bar at the top of my safari screen.  I'm supposed to be able to click the arrow to either go back to the previous page or go forward to the next page.  But I deleted it somehow.  And now I don't know how to get it back.  I found a solution in someone else's post: Safari, View, Customize Tool Bar.  I tried to do that but it doesn't work for me.  I dragged the back arrows to my tool bar but they won't stay up there. What do I do now?

    Nevermind, it's back!  And thank you for the tip on taking snapshots on my desktop.  It works.

    Hmm, that is the normal solution for customizing the Safari toolbar. The only thing I can think of now is to use the Reset Safari command from the Safari menu, but you will lose all your bookmarks and other preferences. You can export the bookmarks and reimport them, though.


    EDIT: OK, glad you got the button back. You might say what you did for other's benefit.
