To take a screenshot on a MacBook, you can use the built-in keyboard shortcuts. Here’s how:
- Press Command + Shift + 3 to take a screenshot of the entire screen.
- Press Command + Shift + 4 to take a screenshot of a selected area. When you press these keys, your cursor will turn into a crosshair. Use the crosshair to select the area you want to capture, then release the mouse or trackpad button.
The screenshot will be saved to your desktop as a .png file. You can then open the file and edit or share it as needed.
If you want to copy the screenshot to the clipboard instead of saving it to a file, add the Control key to the shortcut. For example, use Command + Shift + Control + 3 to take a screenshot of the entire screen and copy it to the clipboard.
