In the spirit of my last blog post… I’m writing this one too, in part, because I simply don’t use the shortcuts often enough to actually remember them.

I’m not going to list all the commands here, I’ll list those I use the most.

1. How do you capture the entire screen?
Just press the Command + Shift + 3. A .png image will automatically be saved to your desktop. Nice and handy.

2. How do you capture a portion of the screen?
Again, simple…. press Command + Shift + 4. You’ll now be able to select a section of the screen with the mouse. And just like the first, a .png image will be saved to your desktop.

There are some more variations to screen shots and the Mac here.
