I'm a Mac kind of girl. There's a cute little utility called "Grab" that we use. Or there are keyboard shortcuts, but I never remember which one is which.

Try it.

It changes your mouse into a capture tool and saves automatically to desktop.


Edit: Control/Shift/3 automatically captures the whole active window.

Nice. That's what I use most - the partial capture not the window or whole screen

Yes, Macs certainly are easier to use. I have to press the "Print Screen" key to do that. Okay, well maybe it is labeled "PrtSc", but pressing that saves an image file (PNG) to the desktop. Oh, and pressing Alt-PrtSc takes a screenshot of only the active window, instead of the entire screen.

Edit: And Windows users, my OS eats your OS for breakfast, and virtualizes it, too: www.youtube.com...

Hmm, I think I should have gotten TWISI's debate subject...

And to take a screenshot of just a piece of a window?

BTW, I think there's a lady in distress who needs help from people who speak Windows a couple posts up from here

Well, I'm not using Windows (see above edit), but if I remember correctly, Windows does the same thing with the "PrtSc" key, except it copies the picture to the clipboard, rather than saving it automatically. Once it's on the clipboard, you can run the built-in "Paint" program, create a new document (which will be sized appropriately to what's on the clipboard), then choose "Paste", and save it.

I knew you didn't use Windows personally, but I figured your general genius in all non-Mac computer-related fields would cover such questions


But I'm confused, does PrintScreen take a screenshot of the whole desktop, or does it let you choose just a small part of the screen (which is what command-shift-4 does for us)?

Most if not all computers have an OS.

Macs presently have OS X.

I only mention this to encourage quickly advancing the debate beyond quibbling definitions.

PrtSc = entire desktop, Alt+PrtSc = current window. To take a screenshot of just a particular region of the screen, it's the 'super key' (windows logo on some keyboards, option key on a Mac keyboard) + click and drag with the mouse.

I don't think there's a built-in way to capture just a selected region of the screen, on Windows.

But I think the "super key" is probably what we call a "Command" key – our "option" key is the "alt" key. And just to confuse things further, we use our "Command" key the way Windows uses its "Control" key. But we do have a "Control" key too


The "Command" key was once-upon-a-time the "Open Apple" key.

How about this:

In Firefox when you google up a .pdf, there is usually an option that says "view as HTML". Then copy & paste what you want and link to that url.

Or, when viewing a .pdf in Adobe Reader (a free download for both Windows or Mac), you CAN copy text from the .pdf and paste it into a word processor or text editor, although you may have to use the keyboard shortcuts instead of selecting copy and paste from the Edit menu.

Link to the URL for the .pdf, then type in the page number and location (3rd paragraph, 10 lines from bottom of page, etc.) where the quote is located so that the readers & judges don't have to search or dig for it.

If you open the "downloads" window from your web browser (sometimes located in Tools), then right click on the name of the file, you should have an option to "open containing folder" which will show you where the file was put. Or, you can right click and open the downloaded file directly from the downloads window (unless the browser can't figure out what to open it with).

Good luck.
