how to take a screenshot on a chromebook

Taking screenshots on a Chromebook is easy and straightforward. All you need to do is press the Ctrl + Show Windows keys at the same time. This will take a full-screen screenshot of whatever window is open, and save it to your Downloads folder by default.

If you want to capture just part of the screen, then press the Ctrl + Shift + Show Windows keys at the same time. Your mouse pointer will become a crosshairs icon, allowing you to select any area of the screen to capture. When you’re done selecting, just let go of all the keys and your screenshot will be saved in the Downloads folder.

You can also take screenshots of individual windows, too. Just press the Alt + Show Windows keys at the same time and a screenshot of just that window will be saved to your Downloads folder.

It’s as easy as that! With these simple shortcuts you can take screenshots on your Chromebook quickly and easily.
