How To Take Screen Shots
Taking a screen shot can feel like a daunting task, but with a few tips, it take less than 30 seconds and using screen shots to help demonstrate what you are having trouble with will also accelerate getting an answer.
- My favorite options for Windows 10 users is “Windows + Shift + S” the screen will go slightly dim, then you can click and drag a box around what you want to show. This can then be immediately pasted into a Facebook post, or the body of an email with “Ctrl + V”or by right clicking and pressing “Paste.”
- For Windows 7 and 8 (also available for 10), I like the windows snipping tool.
- For Mac OSX use “Shift + Cmd + 4” Apple Instructions
For anything that I need to explicitly indicate something, I take a screen shot with the method above, and then “Ctrl + V” into MSPaint. Read this article for detailed instructions.
