This guide will show you have to take a screenshot on the MacBook Pro. MacBooks are known for their sleek design and powerful performance, but these powerful laptops come with a host of handy features that are often overlooked. One such feature is the built-in tool to capture screenshots. This article will guide you step-by-step on how to take a screenshot on your MacBook Pro, regardless of whether you want to capture the whole screen or just a specific portion of it.
A screenshot, also known as a screen capture, is a digital image taken by a computer or mobile device to record the items visible on the screen. Screenshots are commonly used to create a record of an image or text that you cannot easily save as a file, share a view of your screen with others, or create guides and tutorials, as we’re doing here.
MacBook Pro users have several options for taking a screenshot, thanks to MacOS’s robust screenshot tool. Here are the most common methods:
If you need more functionality, MacOS Mojave (10.14) and later versions include a Screenshot app that offers additional capture options.
After capturing a screenshot, a thumbnail of the screenshot will briefly appear in the corner of your screen. You can click on it to open a window where you can make simple edits, such as cropping the image or adding text and shapes. From this window, you can also share the screenshot via email, Messages, AirDrop, and more.
Taking a screenshot on a MacBook Pro is simple and flexible, with a variety of options for different situations. Whether you’re creating a tutorial, capturing a funny moment, or recording a software bug, the MacBook Pro’s built-in screenshot tools have you covered. This guide was written using macOS Ventura 13.4.1 which is the current version of macOS at the time of writing.
