Just check the guide below, and you will find a detailed guide for each option for screenshots on Mac Pro. We will discuss every screenshot so that you can easily choose the most appropriate one.
Option #1: Command + Shift + 3
The first and the most straightforward way to make a screenshot on a Mac Pro is to use the combination Command + Shift + 3. It captures the entire screen and instantly adds screenshots to the desktop or any other destination. This option is perfectly suitable for personal screenshots or in case you need to send some information quickly.
Option #2: Command + Shift + 4
Combination Command + Shift + 4 is advanced but still not a perfect way to make screenshots on a Mac Pro. Doing it transforms your cursor into a crosshair, allowing you to capture your screen’s specific area easily. The combination Command + Shift + 4 also has many extra functions. Check the list below to learn more about them:
- Hold Spacebar - locks the screenshot area and allows you to move it on the screen
- Press Spacebar - transform your cursor into a camera
- Hold Shift - locks each side of the selected area to enable you adjust the bottom edge of the screenshot
Option #3: Command + Shift + 5
Command + Shift + 5 is probably the most widespread and straightforward way to make a screenshot on your Mac Pro. Using this combination creates a special panel with multiple options on it.
Using Command + Shift + 5, you can adjust the screenshot area, record the entire screen, and save the screenshot area to do the next screenshot quickly. Moreover, there are two buttons to record videos.
Also, you can see the options button, probably the most important in this menu. Here you can choose where to save your screen/video, set up a delay, enter the preview and change other valuable settings to make taking screenshots as comfortable as possible.
That’s it with taking screenshots in Mac Pro. As you can see, you don’t need to install any secondary apps or take too many actions to take a screenshot. Instead, learn a few combinations and use them whenever you want to take high-quality screenshots quickly. Still, macOS also supports various secondary apps.
