Follow the below instructions for taking and saving screenshots on different devices.
- On your Windows computer
Hold down the “Print Screen” key, normally found towards the top right corner of your keyboard. Depending on your keyboard layout, the button can also be called “PrtScn”, “ScrLk” or “Pause”.
After you’ve taken the screenshot, you can paste it onto a Microsoft Word document or an image editing/creating software such as Paint, then save it on your computer.
Note: Ensure the date and time stamp are visible at the bottom right corner of your screen, at the time of screen capture. If your taskbar is hidden, you can temporarily “unhide” it by hovering over its location with your cursor. You can also “unhide” it more permanently by right clicking over it, clicking “Properties” and clearing the selection for “Auto-hide taskbar” found under the Taskbar tab, then saving.
- On your Mac computer
Simultaneously hold down the “Command” and Shift keys, then press the key for the number 3. This will save a screenshot of your entire screen, and automatically save it as a file on your desktop.
Alternatively, you can take a screenshot through your Preview bar, by clicking the “File” menu, and selection “Take Screenshot” from the available menu options.
- On your Android device (smartphone or tablet)
Most Android devices will allow you to take a screenshot of your current view by simultaneously pressing the “Volume Down” and Power buttons for two seconds. A white flash or a flash of the screenshot will appear to indicate it has been successfully captured. The image is then stored in your phone’s dedicated gallery application or photo album.
- On your iOS device (iPhone or iPad)
Press the “Sleep/Wake” button on your device, and immediately follow it with pressing and releasing the “Home” button. A white flash will appear, indicating your screenshot has been successfully captured.
