Taking Screenshot on multiple platforms (via Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/11/28

Cool, I just found out that Wikipedia has a Screenshot topic, listing how to take screenshots (and often shots of the current window) on many platforms, where (*) means I verified them:

  • Apple Mac OS X
    (*) Use “⌘ Cmd+⇧ Shift+3” for the screen or “⌘ Cmd+⇧ Shift+4” for a part of the screen (as of Mac OS X Tiger, you can press the “Spacebar” to capture a Window in stead of part of the screen). You can press “Ctrl” with these shortcuts to the shot goes to the clipboard, otherwise it gets saved as a PNG file.
  • Microsoft Windows
    (*) Use “Prt Sc” for the screen or “Alt+Prt Sc” for the Window
    (note that on my laptop and multi-media keyboards, you need to type the “Fn” key in order to press the “Prt Sc”)
  • Microsoft Windows Phone
    Press the “Sleep/Wake” button and the Startbutton at the same time.
  • Apple iOS
    (*) Press the “Home” and “Lock” button at the same time.
  • Google Android
    Hold the “Volume down” button, then press the “Sleep/Wake” button.
    (*) Or press the “Sleep/Wake” and the “Home” button at the same time.
  • HP WebOS
    Press the “Orange/Gray Key+Sym+P” at the same time.
    Or press “Home Key+Power” at the same time.
  • X Window System
    Varies with the installed tooling
  • Maemo 5
    Press “Ctrl+⇧ Shift+P” at the same time.
  • Google Chrome OS
    Press “Ctrl+F5” to capture the screen or press “Ctrl+⇧ Shift+F5” to capture a portion of the screen.
