The lack of a Print Screen Key on the MacBook is an annoyance for new Mac users coming from a Windows background. As a result, I have included instructions or easy ways to print a Screen or take a Screenshot on Mac.
Take a Screenshot on Mac
Unlike Windows computers, MacBooks don’t have a dedicated Print Screen Key and will not support the Print Screen Key even if a Windows Keyboard is connected to the Mac.
As a result, the only way to print a screen or take a screenshot on a Mac is to use the Keyboard Shortcuts provided by Apple in its macOS software.
Compared to the Windows Print Screen Function, macOS assigned Keyboard Shortcuts to provide more functionality, enable users to take or capture the whole screen or a specific area of the screen.
For instance, pressing Command + Shift + 3 keys captures the entire screen of Mac in a Screenshot, whereas the Command + Shift + 4 keyboard shortcut captures a selected portion of the screen in a Screenshot.
In addition, if you have dual monitors, pressing Command + Shift + 3 takes a screenshot of both monitors.
