How to Screenshot on Mac and Macbook

how to screenshot on macbook

Taking screenshots or print screens is indeed an important job for some people. For those who often work to make tutorial articles and reviews like me, it's an obligation to know how to screenshot and keyboard shortcuts.

Mac or MacBook computers use OS X or macOS, which of course has a screenshot method or a different screen print method than Windows. Even the Mac keyboard is different from Windows so it's natural that the Mac screenshot screenshots are different.

Now there are a number of ways Mac screenshots that you should know, along with keyboard shortcuts that you also need to know. By knowing how to print a Mac screen, you can determine which method is best for you to try to take screenshots of your Mac OS X or macOS computer.

Full-Screen Mac Screenshot

How to screenshot this one is arguably the easiest. You don't need to think about the print screen or screenshot area because the results of this screenshot are one full screen. Everything you see on your Mac or MacBook screen is what will be taken in the print screen or screenshot process.


How to screenshot one full screen is also very easy. Just press the Cmd + Shift + 3 shortcut. You can hear the sound of screenshots which means the screenshot process is complete. You can see the screenshot on your Mac OS X or macOS Desktop.

Screenshot of Most Mac Screens

Maybe you want to take a picture of the Mac screen in part. Yes, you can do it without having to take a full screen for you to screenshot even though you can edit the results of the screenshot.


You can press the Cmd + Shift + 4 shortcut instead. You will see the mouse cursor icon will change to a selector that will select the area you want to print screen. Just click and hold, then drag in the area you want to print screen. The screenshot will be saved on the Mac Desktop.

Screenshot of a single Mac program window

Taking a single screen print window manually by selecting the method above might work, but the results won't be as neat as using the Mac screenshot shortcut which is intended for full window print screen.


Simply prepare the application window or program that you want to open by the program, then press the shortcut Cmd + Shift + 3 + Space (Space). The cursor icon will change to a camera icon that will give you a notification of which window you want to print screen. You can see the results on the Mac desktop.
