Step-by-Step Guide to Taking a Scrolling Screenshot on an Apple MacBook Air
Taking a scrolling screenshot on an Apple MacBook Air is a great way to capture long webpages or documents in one image. This guide will walk you through the steps of taking a scrolling screenshot on your MacBook Air.
1. Open the webpage or document that you want to take a scrolling screenshot of.
2. Press and hold the “Command” and “Shift” keys, then press “4” at the same time. Your cursor will turn into crosshairs with numbers next to it, indicating that you are now in screen-capture mode.
3. Move your cursor over the top left corner of what you want to capture, then click and drag it down until all of what you want is highlighted in blue (you can also use arrow keys for more precise selection).
4. When everything is highlighted, release your mouse button and wait for the screenshot to be taken automatically (it may take several seconds). The image will be saved as a .png file on your desktop with a name like “Screen Shot [date] at [time].png”
5. To view or edit your screenshot, double-click on it from your desktop or open it using Preview or another photo editing program such as Photoshop or GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program).
How to Capture Long Webpages with a Scrolling Screenshot on Your Apple MacBook Air
Capturing long webpages with a scrolling screenshot on your Apple MacBook Air is a simple process. To begin, open the webpage you wish to capture in your browser of choice. Once the page has loaded, press and hold the “Command” and “Shift” keys simultaneously while pressing the number “4” key. This will bring up a crosshair cursor that you can use to select an area of the page to capture.
Once you have selected an area, release all three keys and click and drag your mouse down until you reach the bottom of the page. As you do this, a blue box will appear around your selection area that shows how much of the page is being captured in your screenshot. When you reach the bottom of the page, release your mouse button and wait for a few seconds as it captures all visible content on that webpage into one image file.
Your screenshot will be saved as an image file on your desktop with its name beginning with “Screen Shot” followed by today’s date and time stamp in 24-hour format (e.g., Screen Shot 2021-04-20 at 10:00 AM). You can then open this image file using any photo editing software or simply view it directly from Finder or Preview app on MacOS for quick reference purposes without having to scroll through long webpages again!
