Step-by-Step Guide: How to Take a Scrolling Screenshot on Your Apple Computer
Taking a scrolling screenshot on your Apple computer is a great way to capture an entire webpage or document in one image. This guide will walk you through the steps of taking a scrolling screenshot on your Mac.
Step 1: Open the webpage or document that you want to take a scrolling screenshot of.
Step 2: Press and hold the “Command” and “Shift” keys, then press “4”. Your cursor will turn into crosshairs.
Step 3: Move the crosshairs to the top left corner of what you want to capture, then click and drag them down and across until everything is highlighted. When you release your mouse button, it will take a screenshot of everything within that area.
Step 4: To take a scrolling screenshot, press and hold the spacebar while still holding down Command + Shift + 4. The cursor will change into an up-and-down arrow with two lines next to it; this indicates that it is ready for taking a scrolling screenshot.
Step 5: Move this new cursor over what you want to capture, then click and drag it down until everything has been highlighted in blue (this may require multiple clicks). When finished, release your mouse button; this will take a full-page or full-document scrollable image of whatever was highlighted in blue when released.
Step 6: Your newly created scrollable image should now appear as one file on your desktop (or wherever else screenshots are saved). You can now open this file with any photo editing software for further editing if desired!
Tips and Tricks for Taking the Perfect Scrolling Screenshot on Your Mac
1. Open the window or page you want to capture in a browser.
2. Press Command + Shift + 4 on your keyboard to open the screenshot tool.
3. Click and drag your mouse over the area you want to capture, then release it when you’re done selecting the area.
4. When prompted, press Spacebar on your keyboard and click on the window or page you want to capture in its entirety (including any scrolling content).
5. The screenshot will be saved as a .png file on your desktop by default, but you can also save it as a different file type if desired by clicking “Options” at the bottom of the screen and selecting an alternative format from there (e.g., .jpg).
6. If needed, use an image editor such as Preview or Photoshop to crop out any unnecessary parts of the screenshot before saving it for final use!
