How to take a screenshot on your Windows/ Mac

Windows - Open Snipping Tool and take a screenshot

  • To open Snipping Tool, select the Start  button, type snipping tool, and then select it in the search results.
  • To choose the type of snip you want, select Mode (or, in older versions of Windows, the arrow next to New), and then choose Free-form, Rectangular, Window, or Full-screen Snip. When making free-form or rectangular snips, use your mouse to select the area that you want to capture.
  • To take a new screenshot using the same mode you used last, select New.
  • Use the Save and Copy buttons at the top of the snip to save or copy it to the clipboard.
