Learn how to grab screenshots in any device - Windows, OS X, iOS, Apple Watch, Android, Microsoft Surface, Windows Phone, and Linux in this helpful article.
A screenshot is capturing an image of whatever is on the screen of whatever device you're using. With so many of us having more than one device, knowing how to take a screenshot using your particular device or operating system is useful and convenient.
I most often grab screenshots using whatever browser I'm in at the moment - there are many add-ons/extensions you can use, the ones I've used and like are Nimbus (my current favorite, works with Firefox, Chrome, Android, PC), Fireshot (works in Firefox, Chrome, Opera or IE), and Lightshot (Mac, Windows, browser add-on and online app). If you use want to use one of these options in Opera and it isn't supported, check out our How to Install Chrome Extensions in Opera article.
