I should know this but admit I dont.
apple-shift-3 for a full screen
apple-shift-4 for crosshairs that let you drag over the area you want in the pic
they save to the desktop as png files
More in Apple > System Preferences > Keyboard & Mouse > Keyboard Shortcuts
CMD+Shift+3 for a full screen shot and CMD+Shift+4 to bring up cross hairs to select what you want to take a screen of...
CMD+Shift+4+space = Camera to take screenshot of entire window.
Or use SnapNDrag.
cmd+shift+4 is the best screenshot option...i use it a lot...the best ever option available...
There's a utility called Grab that gives you a little more control. It's in Applications<Utilities.
Also, Apple Help has answers to a lot of these questions. =)
apple+shift+3 or 4 (+space if wanted) + control = whatever you select to the clipboard.
To clarify these responses, "Command" is the official name for what some are calling the "Apple" key.
You may also hear it called "Flower" from old-timers.
They are all the same key; the key with the Apple and the squigly line thing.
and control is the "ctrl" key next to option.
Add me on to this question! I own a 2009 IMac desktop and have no idea how to take a screen shot. Can someone give me a step-by-step explanation?
Did you not read the thread? I don't think it could be answered any more completely.
via a search engine like Google: http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=mac how to take screenshot&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8
I only just saw this this week, is it new in 10.6.6 or have I just ignored it for ages??? It's good and helpful either way if you can't remember the shortcuts!
I think it's been around since 10.4
