How to Take a Screenshot on a Chromebook

It’s simple to take a screenshot in Chrome OS. The basic steps are as follows

  1. To take a screenshot of your entire screen, you can simply press the key combination ‘control + overview’.
  2. The screenshot will be saved in your downloads folder and can be opened, edited or shared from there.
  3. You can click on the pop-up that appears to view the Download folder. You can also click to have the screenshot copied to your clipboard, ready to be pasted into a document or social media post.
  4. To take a screenshot of a portion of your screen, you can press the key combination ‘control + shift + overview’.
  5. The screen will darken a bit and your mouse pointer will turn into a small cross. Click and drag over the area that you want to capture.
  6. Just like a regular screenshot, the image will be saved in your downloads folder and can be opened, edited or shared from there.
