A few people have asked Dundee e-MedEd recently how to take a screenshot of a webpage so that they can paste it into a PowerPoint slide for one of their lectures. If you’re using a PC you use the Print Screen button. I used to think if you hit this key it would print your screen to your printer (did anyone else think that?), but what it actually does is capture a snapshot of what’s on your PC monitor as an image file which you can then paste into a PowerPoint slide, Word document or into a graphics package so that you can edit it. If you use a Mac you take a shot using the command and shift key together with 3 to capture the whole screen and 4 if you want to draw a rectangle to capture a specific area of the screen.
