Here’s how to create a screenshot on PC or Mac computers:

How to Take & Save A Screenshot on A PC or Mac

Take a Screenshot (PC)

Navigate to the page you want to take a picture of.

Press the Print Screen key on your computer keyboard (It will likely read “PRT SC,” and is often found at the upper right-hand corner of your keyboard). This copies everything that is displayed on your computer monitor into a temporary clipboard.

Open the Paint program on your computer. It arrives installed on every PC for free, so you should have a copy of it. (Click Start > Programs > Accessories > Paint to open the Paint program.)

Click Edit.

Select Paste.

Click File > Save to save your image.

Save your image where you’d like to—saving it to your desktop can be helpful so you can find it quickly and it’s easy to delete once you’ve emailed it to us.


Take a Screenshot (Mac)

Press the Command (the button with the Apple icon), Shift, and the number 3 keys, all at the same time, to take a screenshot.

Your screenshot is automatically saved to your desktop.

Keeping it on your desktop can be helpful so you can find it quickly and it’s easy to delete once you’ve emailed it to us.

(P.S. Mac provides many other screenshot options. You can visit this web page for more info: http://guides.macrumors.com/Taking_Screenshots_in_Mac_OS_X)
