How do I take screenshots on Mac?

There are several ways to take a screenshot on your Mac:
1. Press Command+Shift+4, then select the part of the screen you want to capture. When you release the box, the screenshot will be saved on your desktop as a file.
2. Press Command+Shift+3 to take a shot of the whole screen. It will be also saved as a file at your desktop.
3. Press Command+Shift+Spacebar+4 to take a screenshot of only one window. Place your cursor over the window you want to capture and click on it to make a picture.
Note that in case you want to save the screenshot to the clipboard just add the Control button to any combination.
You can also use the Grab utility as an alternative to the shortcuts above. This application comes with Mac OS X and you can find it in Applications → Utilities → Grab.
