How to make a screenshot.

Sometimes it’s useful to be able to take a picture of what you’re seeing and then email that picture to your web designer. Here’s how to do it:

MACS:

Hold down the Shift key and the Command key (it’s to the left and right of the space bar), and press the number 4.  Your cursor will turn to crosshairs.  Drag your cursor to enclose the area you want to take a screenshot of.  If you have sound turned on you’ll hear a clicking sound.  The file called “Screen shot mm/dd/yyyy” will be saved to your desktop.

WINDOWS:

  1. Press the PrintScreen (or PrtScn) key to take a screenshot of the whole screen.
  2. Open Microsoft Paint (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Paint).
  3. Hold down the Ctrl key and press the letter V
  4. Click File > Save As, give it a filename and save the file somewhere on your hard drive where you’ll be able to retrieve it.

Once you have the file created, you can attach it to an email.
