How To Take A Screenshot

Screenshots allow you to capture an image of a portion or the entirety of your screen. Once obtained, you may utilize it in a myriad of ways: provide creative feedback, archive technical issues, communicate a business example, demonstrate a specific function for a tutorial, demonstrate a product, share a snippet of a conversation, or anything else you can think of - the list is endless.
