What is a Screenshot?

A screenshot is an image taken of whatever is on the user's screen. It can be used to capture a moment in time, document a process, or provide evidence of something. Screenshots are often used to troubleshoot technical issues and can be shared with others for collaboration or instruction.

How to Take a Screenshot?

Taking a screenshot is easy and can be done in several ways depending on the device being used. On Windows computers, pressing the Print Screen key will take a screenshot of the entire screen. On Macs, Command + Shift + 3 will take a screenshot of the entire screen, while Command + Shift + 4 will allow you to select an area to capture. On mobile devices, pressing the power and volume down buttons at the same time will take a screenshot.
