Take Screenshots in Mac

I am a Windows user but a few days back, I switched to Mac (purchased a 2nd hand device to check whether I can work on it or not). There are a few things that, I noticed. Everything is almost the opposite. When I bought, the second-hand Macbook, then I faced a lot of challenges while using it. For the first two hours, I kept on finding where is the right click. 

Then after that, I called the shop from where I purchased the Macbook and said “This is a faulty Macbook, the right click is not working”. He laughed at me and said. There is no right-click on Mac. I disconnect the phone. After that, I kept on searching for other things related to Macbook. And among those things, one is How To Take Screenshots in Mac.

Bonus Tips for New Mac Users

  • Where’s My Right-Click?  Macs don’t have a dedicated right-click button. Instead, you can either hold down the Control key while clicking or configure a two-finger click on your trackpad.
  • The Command Key is Your Friend:  Think of the Command key (with the little ⌘ symbol) as the Mac equivalent to the Windows Ctrl key for many shortcuts.
  • Need to Capture Just a Portion of the Screen? Use the combo Shift + Command + 4 and you can drag a box around the area you want.
