Screenshot to Include in an Email or Document


This article has not yet been rated.

There are many times when you would like to include a picture of your computer screen in an email or other document. Here are the instructions:

For Windows 10 users Press Windows Key + Shift+ S to open the snip and sketch feature. This allows you to take shots of your entire screens or portions of your screen with a toolbar at the top.  These pictures will be available on your clipboard and can be easily dropped into a Teams Conversation or other media.

For Mac users hold down command, shift, and 3. That will copy your entire screen into the clipboard. If you want to select only a portion of your screen, hold down command, shift, 4, and drag your mouse over the portion you would like to screenshot.

Once the picture is in your clipboard you can paste it into a document using Ctrl + v (or Command + v).
