How to Screenshot

Last updated by MooMoo on 1/28/14: updated entire page

It is impossible for me to provide instructions on how to screenshot for every single computer/laptop/phone/tablet in existence. If your device was not listed on here, simply GOOGLE IT!! That’s how I found all of these, it’s not that hard!

PC (Windows)

Windows 8

Windows 7


Mac (Apple)

Mac OS





Samsung Galaxy or Android

Chrome Book

  1. Lolz, I didn’t know that so many people didn’t know how to take screen shots!
    I have the exact same Power Point as you but I use Paint.
    But usually if I wanna add images on top of one another or crop them or add effects etc I usually use Microsoft Word 2010
    EPIC how you took a vid of a slideshow!

    That’s very helpful


  3. I use Photoscape to do these stuffs ! But learning never ends… so I learn something new ! Thanks!


  4. If you r on google chrome, you can just go to the chrome webstore, type in screenshot,and you can get a screen shot thing. The icon looks like a purple feather and it`s the best one I found!
    I hope this info. was helpful 2 someone!
    (I didn`t watch vid, so if this is what you did, then sowwie)

    Nice tutorial 🙂


  6. OMG thanks SOOO MUCH!


  7. WHAT. AND ALL THIS TIME I’VE BEEN PRESSING “FN” + “PRTSC” (which still works, but the FN key was totally unneeded >.>)
    I think I’m stupid… My friends are like “Here, let me help you wash the stupid off your face. ….wait… AHHHHH it’s not coming off!”

    For some reason it doesn’t work for me….


  11. Also if you have windows 7 you can use the snipping tool. Then save it in library pictures.

    This is a easy way for people with window7


  12. Is it ok if I press PRNTSC instead of PRNTSCR or the other buttons you talked about? Is it the same thing???


  13. lolz i’ve been trying to figure this out for like a year xP!!!!!!!!! Thanks!

  14. Please approve my message this time? I want to know how to screenshot!!! It won’t let me screenshot for some reason. I pressed PRTSC on the page I wanted to screenshot. Then, I opened microsoft powerpoint and then pressed CTRL and V. Nothing happened!!! I even tried FN and PRTSC like Eli used to do, but THAT didn’t work either!!! =.= Please help me!!! =.= =.= =.= =.= =.=


  15. I have a tip for people with Microsoft Powerpoint 2013. On the insert tab, they have this thing saying screenshot. Click and choose one of your open windows and it will be on the slide! Then you can right click on it and click save as picture!


  16. Hey moomoo, I started a blog but can I use this advice? I’ll make my own screenshots and slideshow, but I should give credit right? Please reply! Thanks.

    thx that is cool
    ive been trying to figure that out for a longtime
    now i use it a lot


  20. My friend has an iMac but she doesn’t know how to screenshot, can you tell me how? She is helping with my blog so she really needs to know how. Please reply soon.


  21. The Mac does not have the button but I use my phone anyway. To people who have a Mac and phone, on your phone, install puffin. Next, go to whatever website because puffin has adobe. Screenshot by pressing home and off or volume and off. Go to paint or instagram. Crop it by uploading it and change the size to how you like. Email it to yourself XP And get it on your laptop. VOILA!

    wow, i actually just use paint, but i guess, you can also use PowerPoint


  23. For android phones and tablets all u hav to do is press the power button and the volume down button at the same time thats what i do
    hope i helped


  24. You don’t have to download an app for android phones. Press the power button and volume down button at the same time. You have to hold them for about 2 seconds.

    I use lightshot its way more helpful to xat if someone is being bad


  29. For androids you don’t have to download an app, all you have to do is press the home button and the lock button. I’m not sure if this works on all androids but I think it’ll work for most.


  30. On my phone there is a tab at the bottom and you pull down and you get an option to screenshot… im not sure if anyone elses is like that.

    How to screenshot on mobile devices such as Apple is a bit confusing. I didn’t get the tutorial though. 😦

    I was just wondering, usually when I take a screenshot and crop it. The picture seems so small. Then when I resize it, you can kinda see the pixels. Can you give any tips for this? -Erica


  33. Erica393 said:

    I’m so sorry to bother you, but you know how you place you mouse over the ‘How to..’ page and a drop down selection comes down? How did you do that? Can you help me please? -Erica

    When I take a screenshot i just press the Print Screen/SysRq button on my keyboard, then open Paint and paste it there. Then I can just save the picture. I used to do this all the time when I was four and it still works!
