Steps to Screenshot a Webpage on Mac


Taking a screenshot of a webpage on a Mac is very different from Microsoft Windows operating system. For Windows, you have to just press the “Print Screen” to take a Screenshot of your entire screen.

  3. Next, on your keyboard press “Shift + Command + 4” shortcut keys to change your cursor to a crosshair.
  4. Now, you can highlight the area by simply dragging your crosshair in a square.
  5. You can find the screenshot on your desktop with the name “Screen Shot [date][time]”.
  6. If you want to take a screenshot of the whole window then press the “Shift+Command+4+Space bar” shortcut keys.
  7. This will change the cursor to a camera icon.
  8. Now, you can just click on the screen on which you want to take a screenshot of.
  9. If you want to take a screenshot of your Mac screen then, press “Shift+ Command+3”.
