Taking Screenshots in Mac OS X

I can never remember these for some reason, but I seem to need one of them every 6 months or so:

  • Command-Shift-3: Take a screenshot of the screen, and save it as a file on the desktop
  • Command-Shift-4, then select an area: Take a screenshot of an area and save it as a file on the desktop.
  • Command-Shift-4, then space, then click a window: Take a screenshot of a window and save it as a file on the desktop.
  • Command-Control-Shift-3: Take a screenshot of the screen, and save it to the clipboard.
  • Command-Control-Shift-4, then select an area: Take a screenshot of an area and save it to the clipboard.
  • Command-Control-Shift-4, then space, then click a window: Take a screenshot of a window and save it to the clipboard.
