OSX #2: How to capture screen on Mac ?

  1. Capture a portion of the screen: Press Command+Shift+4 and the pointer turns into a bull's eye. Select area of the screen that you wish to capture. That part of the screen is captured and saved as PNG file on your Desktop "Picture 1.png" as shown below:

  2. Capture the entire screen: Command+Shift+3 captures the entire screen.
  3. Capture a highlighted window: Command+Shift+4, Space, (cursor turns into a camera), Click in the highlighted window.
Now Control+Command+Shift+ 3 or 4 will copy the captured image in Clipboard memory instead of creating a file on the Desktop. All of these keyboard shortcuts can be easly customized by going to Preferences -> Keyboard & Mouse -> Keyboard Shortcuts as shown below:
