Windows users can capture an image of what’s on your screen by pressing the ‘PrtScn’ button, on the top row of your keyboard, then paste it into any program that can process JPG images, like Windows Paint or paste it into an e-mail.
Another alternative is the Windows Snipping Tool, which can be started by pressing the Windows key, then typing ‘Snip’. Under it’s ‘New’ menu, you can select to capture different areas of your screen. Once captured, you can also make explanatory drawings on it before you click the save, copy or e-mail buttons.
Similarly, Macintosh users can use Grab, which you can find in /Applications/Utilities. You can then save it in a number of formats, make notations on it, save or share it.
We at Psychiatry IT love it when you send a picture, to explain your computer issue
