First, press the “Ctrl” and “Switch Window” keys at the same time to capture your entire screen. Your Chromebook will then take a full-screen screenshot and save it to your Downloads folder as an image file.

Once you have selected an area for your partial screenshot, click on “Save As” located in the upper left corner of the image window and choose where you would like to save it on your Chromebook. You can also rename it if desired before saving it as an image file (e.g., .png).
