    Hey everyone,

    When i take a screenshot using the copy-to clipboard key shortcuts (command + control + shift + 3 or 4), the pasted result of this is extremely magnified of what the screen shows.

    Is there a setting to adjust the size of my pasted screenshot?

    When i don't hold down control (to copy screenshot into clipboard), the resulting screenshot created on the desktop seems to be proper size.
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    I don't know any reason why it would only do that when you copy to clipboard, but the only way it COULD do that is on a retina display. Are you using a retina display?

    It could be that the app you were using didn't support retina resolution so it got magnified just like it would on a normal non-retina Mac.

    ok thanks for the help.

    I was pasting it into office suite apps (Word/Outlook) as well as attempting to paste it into my Parallels VM.

    Pasting it into the a new gmail email within the Mac Chrome Web Browser works fine. Pasting it into Mac Evernote app works fine.

    Guess it's dependent on the application supporting retina display?
