    pressing command + 3/4)? Chances are you might have a ton of files left over on your desktop after a long screenshot session.

    If you don't need the files piling up on your desktop and just want to paste a picture somewhere, pressing Control + Command + Shift + 3 for a full screenshot (or 4 for cross hair selection tool).

    The screenshots will be copied to the clipboard where you can paste them into a document.

    when done just go to edit then scroll down to show clipboard.
