Making screenshots, or taking prints, as we usually talk about on a day-to-day basis, is quite common in any operating system. Whether on a computer or on a mobile device, this feature turns out to be quite useful in different ways. Although almost everyone knows how to do this in Windows, for example, it is normal to have doubts about the procedure on Apple computers. Fortunately, there are some very simple and different ways to get print on Mac, as you can check out our tips right below!
1. Print full screen
To take a simple print of the entire screen of the Mac, you just need to press the “Command”, “Shift” and “3” keys at the same time while on the screen you want to capture. You can find the PNG image file on your Mac’s Desktop.
2. Partial Screen Print
Of course, not all of you have the patience to edit a full-screen print, so how about taking a print exactly what you want? To do this, just do a partial screen capture, that is, you can select the area you would like to print.
To do this, press “Command”, “Shift” and “4” at the same time. The mouse cursor will change to a cross pointer, which will assist you in taking the print. Place the pointer under the area you want to capture, click the mouse, and drag to the end of the print area.
When you release the mouse button, the capture will be done and saved as a PNG file on the Mac Desk. Quite simple, is not it?
3. Print from a specific window
If you want to capture a screen from a specific Mac window, you can use the “Command”, “Shift” and “4” shortcuts to turn the cursor on the new pointer. Only this time, press the space key shortly afterward, which will make the cursor turn into a small camera.
With the cursor, this way, take it to the window from which you want to print to highlight it. The capture will be done when you click on the window with the mouse, and you will find the image saved on the Table.
4. Print from a menu
To get a print out of a menu is also very simple. First, open the menu in question to see the content that will be captured. Then press “Command”, “Shift” and “4” at the same time to turn the cursor on pointer again.
Now, drag the cursor to the menu to select it and release the mouse button to get the printout. The image will be saved to the Table in PNG format.
5. Print a menu without the title
Finally, you can also take a print out of a menu without displaying its title, preventing you from having to do some editing with software. To do this, open the menu to see its contents and use the shortcut “Command”, Shift “and” 4 “next.
Now, press the space key on your keyboard to turn the cursor on a camera. Move the cursor over the desired menu and click on it with the mouse to take your print, which will be saved as PNG in the Table.
