This article will tell you how to take a screenshot, both on iOS and on a Mac.
Screenshots on iOS
To take a screenshot on an iOS device (iPod touch, iPad and iPhone), simply press then release the home button and the power/sleep button at the same time. These buttons do not need to be held down for long, just a simple press and release. The screen should flash white and there should be a camera shutter sound (if the volume is on) to indicate a successful screenshot. Open the Photos app and tap Camera Roll to view the screenshot.
Screenshots on Macintosh
To take a screenshot on a Mac, three keys need to be held down at the same time:
To take a screenshot of a specific application's window, press Command + Shift + 4. After these buttons are released, press the space bar, and the cursor should look like a camera. Now, just click on the desired window and the window will be captured.
All screenshots are saved to the desktop.
If you prefer not to use the keyboard shortcuts, there is a Mac utility called Grab that accomplishes the same thing. To access it, open Finder. Then select the "Go" menu, then select Utilities.
