Ways to capture a screen shot
Here are some ways in which you can take a snap shot of the email a retailer sent to you with your order confirmation or commercial invoice.
On your computer
In Windows, you can take screenshots of the active window. Open the window that you want to capture and press Alt + PrtScn on your keyboard. The screenshot is saved to the clipboard. Open Paint or any other photo editing software and paste the image so that you can edit it and save it to your Windows computer or device.
Use the Snipping Tool
The Snipping Tool is a great desktop app for taking screenshots. It can create all kinds of screenshots, and you can also use it to do some light editing. Search for the words “snipping tool” in the Start Menu search box (if you use Windows 10 or Windows 7) or on the Start screen (if you use Windows 8.1) and click or tap on the appropriate search result. Click on New and move the cursor to take a rectangle cut out of your screen and click on Copy to save it to the clipboard. Open Paint or any other photo editing software and paste the image so that you can edit it and save it to your Windows computer or device.
On a MAC
Command + Shift + 3 captures an image of your whole screen.
Command + Shift + 4 turns the cursor into a crosshair, allowing you to select which portion of your screen you would like to capture.
On your phone
Save the screen to your photo gallery.
