Step-by-Step Guide to Taking Screenshots on a Google Chromebook
Taking screenshots on a Google Chromebook is a simple process that can be done in just a few steps. This guide will walk you through the process of taking and saving screenshots on your Chromebook.
1. To begin, press the “Ctrl” and “Window Switcher” keys at the same time. The Window Switcher key is located in the top row of your keyboard, usually between the full-screen and brightness buttons.
2. Your screen will dim briefly to indicate that you have taken a screenshot of your entire screen. The screenshot will automatically be saved to your Downloads folder as a PNG file with an automatically generated filename such as “Screenshot 2020-09-17 at 12:00:00 PM”
3. If you would like to take a partial screenshot instead, press “Ctrl”, “Shift” and “Window Switcher” keys simultaneously instead of just pressing Ctrl and Window Switcher keys together like before. Your screen will dim again but this time it will also show crosshairs which you can use to select an area for your partial screenshot by clicking and dragging with your mouse or trackpad until it covers the desired area for capture. When finished selecting an area for capture, release all three keys at once to take the partial screenshot which will also be saved in your Downloads folder as before with an automatically generated filename such as “Partial Screenshot 2020-09-17 at 12:00:00 PM”.
4. To view or edit any screenshots taken on your Chromebook, open up Files app from either Chrome OS launcher or from within Chrome browser itself by typing chrome://files/ into address bar then click enter key on keyboard (or select Go option from dropdown menu). Once Files app opens up navigate to Downloads folder where all screenshots are stored by default then double click any image file there to open it up in Chrome’s built-in image viewer where you can view or edit them if needed using various tools available there such as cropping tool etc..
And that’s it! You now know how easy it is to take both fullscreen and partial screenshots on Google Chromebooks!
