How to capture a screen shot in Mac OSx


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.

CBC Archives: Introducing the Macintosh, 1984


I had to post this. Been watching some of the CBC Archives on YouTube, I like spending time on YouTube occasionally.

Found this great video on the introduction of the Macintosh. A GUI computer!!

I remember doing all the text based commands to start up early generation computer games, word processing programs and all that. I had an old Tandy 1000 years back when I was a kid.

Here’s an introduction to the Macintosh, a GUI interface, a mouse…. easy as pie.
