Today’s tip: #116–How to Take Screenshots
Category: CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT
Sub-category: Keyboarding, PC, Mac, iPad, Chromebook
Here are the screenshot shortkeys for five platforms:
- Windows: a tool included in Windows called the Snipping Tool
- Chromebooks: Ctrl+Window Switcher key
- Mac: Command Shift 3 for a full screenshot; Command Shift 4 for a partial screenshot
- Surface tablet: hold down volume and Windowsbutton
- iPad: hold Home button and power button simultaneously
There are also screenshot programs you can download like Jing and Printkey (the latter uses your keyboard’s Print Scr key) or use from your browser (like Nimbus or Snagit). Each has a different selection of annotation tools. You may find this works better for your needs.
