Take a quick screenshot on a Mac

To create a screenshot on your Mac:

  • click Command+Shift+4;
  • you'll see a pointer with crosshairs appear;
  • move it to where you want to start the screenshot;
  • then drag the mouse to create the selection;
  • click the mouse or trackpad to finish capturing the screenshot.

Your new screenshot will appear on your Desktop with a name that starts with "Screen Shot" and ends with the date and timestamp of the screenshot.
