How to screenshot in Computers

Assalam o Alaikum! Friends today am posting how to take screenshot on both Windows & Mac OS.
How to Take Screenshot in Windows.
There are couple of ways to capture a screen in Windows.
So,the easiest of them is what we will be going through here.

    • The first is by using the default screen-capture key on every computer(i.e The PrtScn) on your keyboard.
    • Locate it & let's start.
    • To take the shot of everything currently displaying on the screen including all open windows,press PrtScn.
    • This will be automatically placed in the Clipboard.
    • To capture just the active window,press Alt+PrtScn.
    • Now to save the shots,open Microsoft paint by navigating to Start » Programs » Accessories » Paint and paste it there.
    • Next select File from the top menu and choose “Save as
    • Give it any name you want and choose a directory to save the image.
    • The second method involves using the “SPINNING TOOL”.This tool is by default part of  winidws8/7  & Windows vista.
    • It is capable of capturing a specified area of a page instead of the whole screen as with the previous method.
    • You can choose to use an amoeba-like[irregular] shape,a rectangle or capture the whole screen.
          How To Use “SNIPPING TOOL”.
      • Go to start » All Programs » Accessories » Snipping Tool.
      • Select a snipping type by clicking on the arrow next to “New” button.
      • Select the window or portion of the screen you want to capture using your mouse.
      • To highlight part of the screenshot,click on the pen/highlighter button in the menu.
      • Likewise,to capture a menu/drop-down menu,press ESC after you've launched the Snipping tool,then open the menu you want to capture & press Ctrl + PrtScn.
      These are for windows

      How To Take Screenshot on Mac OS X.
      Mac OS has an in-built screen-grabbing function,which enables you to take shots by clicking on some key combinations.When these keys are pressed,a click sound will be heard,then the screen-shot will immediately be saved in .PNG format.
      • To capture the whole screen,press Cmd + Shift + 3 all at once.
      • To capture just a portion of the screen,press Cmd + Shift + 4.
      • Just drag the crosshair that appears around the area to be captured.
      • To capture a specific window,press Cmd + Shift + 4 and immediately after that,hit the Spacebar.
      • The crosshair will then turn into a small camera,highlighting all menus that can be captured.
