How to take, save and send screenshots via e-mail (MacOS)

To take a screenshot of a selected section of your screen, follow these steps:

  1. Press Shift + Command + 4 simultaneously. The pointer will change to a crosshair.
  2. Move the crosshair to where you want to start the screenshot, then drag to select an area. When ready, release to create the screenshot.
  3. The screenshot is automatically saved on your desktop.
  4. To send the screenshot via e-mail, right-click the file. Follow ‘Share’ >> ‘Mail’.
  5. A new e-mail window has been opened for you. Your file is now attached to your e-mail. You can add the recipient and the subject and send.
  6. If you haven’t set up your mail client yet and you are unable to send your e-mail this way, you can log in to Webmail and send the file from there.
