Tech Tip
  • Sometimes the easiest way to show someone what you are doing on your screen is to do a quick screen capture. This is especially helpful when trying to explain a problem to tech support. Here's how:
  • On a PC:  Select the Print Screen button on your keyboard to capture an image of your entire screen and copy it to the clipboard. Or go to the Start menu and open the Snipping Tool - available in most editions of Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. If you use the Snipping Tool, you can choose the shape of the snip, adjust the snip boarder, then save the snip as a file on your computer.
  • On a Mac:  Press Command + Shift + 4 and drag the +-shaped cursor over the area you want to capture. This will save the screenshot to your desktop. Or press Control + Command + Shift + 4 to save the screenshot to your clipboard, which you can then paste into another program.
