Mac Screenshot Shortcuts + Commands

February 9, 2012   

I find this continuously frustrating to remember so I thought i'd write a quick blog about the possible mac os x commands for screenshot capturing and what they do for future reference.

  • Command-Shift-3: Take a screenshot of the screen, and save it as a file on the desktop
  • Command-Shift-4, then select an area: Take a screenshot of an area and save it as a file on the desktop
  • Command-Shift-4, then space, then click a window: Take a screenshot of a window and save it as a file on the desktop
  • Command-Control-Shift-3: Take a screenshot of the screen, and save it to the clipboard
  • Command-Control-Shift-4, then select an area: Take a screenshot of an area and save it to the clipboard
  • Command-Control-Shift-4, then space, then click a window: Take a screenshot of a window and save it to the clipboard

Just useful for future reference and for anyone to bookmark for future reference, mac os x screenshot commands.
