Capturing screenshots

There are many ways and programs to capture screenshots, here we'll outline a few.

Capturing screenshots on Windows

The easiest is to use the Snipping Tool for capturing screenshots.

First, write "snip" into the search bar, and select the "Snipping Tool" from the results.


Next, select the "Rectangular Snip" mode. This allows selecting the area on the screen that you want to include in the screenshot.

Then click on the "New" button, and select the area you want to capture. Please also include the browser's address bar in the screenshot.


Next, save the image into your computer by selecting "File" → "Save As..." or send it to your email program by selecting "File" → "Send to" → "Email Recipient".


Capturing screenshots on Mac

First, press and hold these three keys together: Shift, Command, and 4.

Next, select the area that you want to capture.

By default, the screenshot is automatically saved to your desktop.

Capturing screenshots on Linux

First, make sure to have the browser window focused.

Next, press the ALT + Print Screen (PrtScr) buttons on your keyboard.
