My Favorite Mac Tip EVER!

I commented this on my "How to Download Fonts on a Mac" post but just in case you missed it...

My favorite trick is screen shots. If you hold down "command+shift+4" it will give you a little crosshare that you can stretch around whatever you want to take a picture of on your screen. It then saves it to your desktop. It is so much faster than the PC "print screen". Try it!

  1. If you do "command+shift+3" it captures the entire screen.
