How do you take a screenshot? Keyboard shortcuts


If you want to capture something from your screen, you can take a screenshot. Your entire screen or just your active window will be photographed, temporarily saved and then inserted into a new document.

How to take a screenshot on your device

You can take a screenshot on PC, Mac, Android and iPhone.
  • For example, you can take a screenshot under Mac OS by simultaneously pressing the "cmd" + "Shift" + "3" keys. The screenshot is saved as a file on the desktop.
  • On your iPhone, on the other hand, hold down the power button and the home button at the same time. With newer devices, press the "Power" and "Volume down" buttons at the same time. The screen then briefly becomes brighter and the screenshot is saved in the photo folder.
  • If you want to capture the screen of your Android as a picture, the procedure may vary depending on the manufacturer. Usually, however, you have to proceed as you did with the iPhone.
  • There are various options to choose from under Windows. Press the "Print" key for the whole screen and "Alt" + "Print" to take a photo of the active window. The picture is then in the clipboard and can be inserted into Paint or an instant messenger such as Telegram using "Ctrl" + "V".
  • You can also use the snipping tool in Windows. Press the key combination “Windows” key + “Shift” + “S”, then you can use the left mouse button to mark the area that you want to photograph. Here, too, the image is stored in the buffer.
