Learn how to take a screenshot on your Chromebook. Screenshots are saved directly to your Google Drive, and are labeled with the date and time they were recorded.

Full Screen

To take a screenshot of everything you see on your Chromebook’s screen at once, press these keys at the same time.


Partial Screen

You can also specify a portion of your screen to take and save a snapshot of. Here’s how to do it.

Step 1: Hold down the Ctrl and Shift keys at once, then press the Switch window button.


Step 2: Chrome’s cursor will be temporarily replaced with a crosshair. Click and drag a square across the portion of the screen you want to save, then release the trackpad.
