Take a screenshot on a Mac using keyboard shortcuts

If you only want to take a screenshot of a portion of your screen, press Command + Shift + 4. This will bring up a crosshair cursor that you can use to click and select the area of your screen that you want to take a screenshot of. Once you have selected the area, release your mouse or trackpad button, and the screenshot will be taken and saved as an image file on your desktop.

Making a screenshot of a specific window can be done by pressing Command + Shift + 4 + Spacebar. This will change your cursor into a camera and move your camera over a window or menu to capture what you want. Then click your trackpad or mouse to take a screenshot.

Take a screenshot on a Mac using the Screenshot toolbar

To open the screenshot toolbar, press Command + shift + 5. The toolbar will become visible on your display. You can see the screenshot icons on the left side. You can take a full-screen screenshot or just a selected window or portion of a screen. By clicking the icon, you activate a screenshot mode.
